Music in Peebles Patron's Concert


7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Event Type

Music in Peebles Patron Gina mcCormack has chosen a Nordic-themed programme for us, bringing together familiar and not-so-familiar composers from Norway, Sweden and Finland. At its heart are sonatas by Norway’s best-known composer, Edvard Grieg, and his lesser-known Swedish contemporary, Emil Sjӧgren. These substantial works are accompanied by a fascinating mix of shorter pieces from Sweden (a ‘Sentimental Romance’ by Wilhelm Stenhammar), Norway (a Romance by Christian Sinding, often seen as the heir to Grieg) and Finland (a Humoresque and three of the ‘Six Pieces for Violin and Piano’ by Jean Sibelius). A rich Nordic mix that is sure to make a memorable season finale.

Please note this concert has had to be delayed – expected new date is Tuesday 4 June. Watch this space for updates.
