A Musical Duologue

with Lindsay Braga (violin/piano) and Andrew Gillett (violin/viola/piano)

Through speech and strings Andrew and Lindsay present duets by Bach, Mozart, Martinu, Benedict Brydern and others. They show how two is better than one and how the duet forms the basis of dialogue and interaction in chamber music.

Lindsay Braga studied the violin at the Royal Northern College of Music with Richard Deakin and Wen Zu Li and has worked since with many orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Welsh National Opera, English National Ballet, the Goldberg Ensemble and Manchester Camerata. Since her move to Devon Lindsay has become highly sought after in the county for both orchestral and chamber music playing. She is a member of the Ten Tors Orchestra and The Divertimento Ensemble.
Andrew Gillett’s early studies were with Colin Sauer (violin) and Keith Lovell (viola) of the Dartington String Quartet. He went on to study viola at the Royal College of Music and the Hochschule für Musik in Frankfurt, Germany. He is the principal viola in the Ten Tors Orchestra and the Divertimento Ensemble. Highly in demand as a freelance chamber and orchestral musician his musical interests are diverse – baroque, contemporary and all things in between; he is sometimes to be found at ceilidhs, playing the fiddle long into the night.
From: 7.30pm to 9.25pm with a short interval at 8.15pm.
Refreshments available from the bar.
