As we predicted,
the concert on 19 March was indeed a cracker! As often happens with Arts Guild
concerts, most of the audience had heard of few of the composers, let alone the
compositions that were to be played, but they proved to be hidden gems, with
the odd masterpiece thrown in! And the Resol String Quartet did them proud – we’ll
be hearing more about these talented young people, who play so beautifully together.
At 7:30pm on Sunday 16 April, we’ll be welcoming the Clyde Duo – flautist Aisling Agnew and harpist Sharron Griffiths. For their
Dunfermline concert the Duo have selected a programme that illustrates a
breadth of repertoire from a wide range of composers. Music in Rannoch reported of them that “Your playing is quite breath-taking, not
only in virtuosity but also in beauty”, so we’re expecting a wonderful end to
details on our Next concert page. Do listen to this taster from that
programme and, better still, plan to come an hear the Duo in person at Viewfield Baptist Church, which combines comfort for the audience with a brilliant acoustic.
For over fifty years Dunfermline Arts Guild has been providing live chamber music concerts on Sundays in Dunfermline for members and friends. In our 2019–20 season we offered a six concerts with a wide range
of talented performers, interpreting “classical” in the broadest sense, for which concert details are still available through this linked page.
The challenges of the last
couple of years were significant, but in season 21–22 we managed to run two concerts which were both well received. With your ongoing support and that of our
new venue partner, Viewfield Baptist Church, and with financial assistance from Chamber Music Scotland, Scotland on Tour and the Tunnell Trust, we came up with an
exciting and varied programme of seven concerts running from September 2022 through
till April 2023. We have already enjoyed six wonderful and very varied concerts, so there is only one more to go!
