  • Concert - Mendelssohn on Mull Festival Ensemble


    Thu 18/5/2017 19:30:00

    Hosted by Borders Music & Arts Society, join us for an evening with the Mendelssohn on Mull Festival Ensemble.

    The Mendelssohn on Mull Festival was founded in 1988 by the revered violinist Leonard Friedman, responsible for so much of lasting value in Scotland's musical life.

    The Festival provides young professionals in the field of string chamber music with an intensive week of training and performance, working with established artists in the surroundings of natural beauty that drew the composer Mendelssohn to Scotland.

    This year eight young professionals who have gained from their experience at the Festival have come together to form an ensemble presenting concerts on the Isle of Mull at our traditional time of early July, and four showcases elsewhere in the UK between March and June. This year’s repertoire has the Mendelssohn Octet as its focus.

    Haydn - Quartet Op 76 no 5
    Dvorak - Quartet Op 96
    Mendelssohn - Octet

    Meet the artistes at the after concert finger buffet (optional at a charge of £7.50).

    Hosted by Borders Music & Arts Society, join us for the Midsummer Concert with John Myerscough ('Cello) & Alisdair Beatson (Piano), commencing with a drinks reception in the Oval Hall at 7pm followed by the concert at 7.30pm.

    John Myerscough leads a busy international career as the cellist of the Doric String Quartet. The Quartet has firmly established itself as the leading British string quartet of its generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the globe.

    As a soloist, John won the Gold Medal and First Prize at the 2006 Royal Overseas League Music Competition. He made his London recital debut in the 2007 Park Lane Group New Year Series at the Purcell Room, a concert described by The Financial Times as a "sterling performance" whilst Hilary Finch in The Times commented: "it was clear that here was a musician of quick, finely honed responses and firm, focused tone [who] artfully alternated song and virtuoso soundscape". He has subsequently given recitals at Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall and the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, at the Brighton, Cambridge, Edinburgh Fringe, Kings Lynn and North Norfolk Festivals and abroad at venues in Australia, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore and Switzerland.
