“Verve and polish” from classical trio
The harp; beautiful to see and to hear…but how many opportunities are there to encounter one live? Well you can do so right here on Saturday March 2nd courtesy of local music charity Inverurie Music, now well known as a local promoter of exquisite classical music performed by some of the best young players in Europe. The Pelléas Ensemble with flute, viola and harp will be at the Acorn Centre on Saturday March 2nd at 8pm. The ensemble was formed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011.
Playing with “verve and polish” (The Times), they recently won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award, and the 2017 Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Overseas League competition. In 2016 they won both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, and won a place on the prestigious Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Programme. In 2015 they won First Prize at the British Harp Chamber Music Competition. They are Tunnell Trust Young Artists. The musicians are Luba Tunnicliffe – Viola, Henry Roberts – Flute, and Oliver Wass – Harp. The music takes in composers such as the lively and tuneful Telemann and the gorgeously sonorous Corelli along with Saint-Saens and others. Not a concert to be bored at ….no stuffy atmosphere …and half the price of city concert halls.
This promises to be an unforgettable evening. Tickets £12.00 (£10.00 conc. & children & students £1.00) available online from Eventbrite, at the door, or from Up West, West High St, Inverurie.
