Wighton Cappuccino Concert - 'Music for birdcage and toasting fork? - a celebratory autumn double-bill'

Saturday November 6, 2004 at 11:00
Marryat Hall, Caird Hall Complex, Dundee
Tickets (coffee+concert) £3:50 at door or box office. Cappuccino served from 10:30am. Concert at 11:00am (ends 11:45am)
Historical Musician in Residence, Sally Garden, returns with a double-bill of her popular 'coffee-house' concerts in the elegant Marryat Hall. Join her as she celebrates the arrival of the splendid Wighton Harpsichord - a unique, versatile and first-class instrument for the people of Scotland's east coast. Two mornings of fine Scottish, French and Italian music in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Not putting up with Sir Thomas Beecham's tongue-in-cheek put down - his irreverent description of the harpsichord as a 'birdcage played with a toasting fork!' - Sally Garden invites recitalist, John Kitchen, and ensemble, Apollo's Banquet to demonstrate the warmth and brilliance of the excellent Wighton Harpsichord in both solo and ensemble roles. Fall under the spell of its sombre passion and easy charm. More at www.wighton.org

In this first of two concerts, leading early keyboard exponent, popular recitalist and recorded artist, John Kitchen unfolds the rich timbres of the Wighton Harpischord. A fascinating programme exploring the exquisite music of the French clavecin master Francois Couperin, the court viol player Antoine Forqueray, Scottish music of the Auld Alliance, and Scots songs and dances from C18 Edinburgh publisher, Robert Bremner.
