Thursday 14 August 2014
Feargus Hetherington - Viola and Benjamin Powell - Piano
The Brahms Viola Sonatas
Violinist/Violist Feargus Hetherington collaborates with the outstanding Manchester-based
pianist Benjamin Powell in a special recital of the two Brahms Viola Sonatas.
This final chamber music by Johannes Brahms is beautiful
and mystical. Both strong and vulnerable, the Sonatas are laced with
sublime melodies and rich textures.
Thursday 23 October 2014 as part of the Mackintosh Festival
Feargus Hetherington - Violin and Gavin Brady - Piano
Sonate pour violon et piano (1917) - Claude Debussy
Sonata No.3 in D minor Op. 108 - Johannes Brahms
Frankfurt-based pianist Gavin Brady joins Feargus Hetherington in two colourful
masterpieces for violin and piano.
Debussy’s Violin Sonata was to be his final work, and one of his most exotic and lyrical. Brahms completed three Violin Sonatas in his career - the last, in D minor
possessing gripping drama and tender songfulness.
Thursday 11 December 2014
Feargus Hetherington - Violin/Viola and Mira Opalinska - Piano
Polish pianist Mira Opalinska joins Feargus in music by Bach and
works from both Scotland and England.
Sonata in E BWV 1016 - Johann Sebastian Bach
Lachrymae (on a song of Dowland) Op. 48 - Benjamin Britten
and music by MacMillan, Mackenzie and Elgar

Each recital lasts about one hour. Ticket Prices: £10 adult and £7 under 16.
