There is very little light at this time of year and a post-festive slump can leave a hollow feel to each weekend. An antidote to such a penumbra is the Sunday Afternoon Concert on January 12th, promoted by Inverurie Music and the North-East Scotland Classical Guitar Society. At 3.00pm at the Acorn Centre you can enjoy the JKL Duo, a flute and guitar couple based in Scotland. Kerry Lynch and Jacopo Lazzaretti are passionate artists in their solo and chamber music recital careers, aiming to present high quality yet accessible performances for all audiences. Scottish Flautist Kerry Lynch has been studying classical music since she was admitted into the Junior Conservatoire of Scotland at 12 years of age. Since then she has studied with some of the world’s most inspiring artists, and has performed in various masterclasses and festivals. Jacopo Lazzaretti, from Rome, graduated from the Conservatoire of Santa Cecilia in 2017 where he studied with Arturo Tallini and completed a Masters Degree in Performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2019 under the guidance of Matthew McAllister and Professor Allan Neave. Music from Scotland features in the concert with John Anderson, My Jo by Robert Burns and also some Scottish Lute pieces. A cosmopolitan mix including Piazzolla, Poulenc, Debussy, Honegger and Machado complete the programme. Light joyful music played beautifully should gladden the heart and encourage us to think that spring cannot be far away. Tickets £10 on-line from Eventbrite or at the door; children free.
