YOUNG talent comes to Inverness Town House this month with March’s offering from Inverness Chamber Music.
On Tuesday 18th March at 7.30pm, the Town House will host the award-winning Busch Ensemble.
Violinist Mathieu van Bellen, cellist Jonathan Bloxham and pianist Omri Epstein took their collective name from Adolf Busch, Yehudi Menuhin’s teacher and past owner of the 1783 Guadagnini violin played by trio member van Bellen.
Since forming the ensemble only two years ago, The Busch Ensemble have won major awards in four renowned chamber music competitions as well as gaining support from the Kirckman Concert Society, the Park Lane Group, the Cavatina and Tunnell Trusts and also been selected for the prestigious ChamberStudio Mentorship Programme run through London’s Kings Place arts centre.
Their programme for Inverness Chamber Music will feature the Beethoven Piano Trio in E flat major, Op 1 No 1, Frank Bridge’s Phantasie Trio in C minor and the spectacular Brahms Piano Trio in B major, Op 8.
The following week, the At One With Music lunchtime concert on Tuesday 25th March at 1pm will feature two young musicians based in Glasgow. Scots cellist Andrew Huggan and Maltese pianist Geoffrey Tanti met at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where they both achieved distinctions and are now developing busy solo, orchestral, ensemble and teaching careers.
For At One With Music’s audience they will be playing Prokofiev’s Cello Sonata in C, Op 119 and Beethoven’s Variations in E flat major on ‘Bei Mannem, welche Lieber fuhlen’ from Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
