Event information

Jenna Stewart (violin) and Ben Marsden (Piano), North East Scotland Music School

Join us on YouTube for this year’s evening of words and music in the elegant surroundings of the Library and the Morning Room in Haddo House. The music is provided by young violinist Jenna Stewart and her accompanist, Ben Marsden, from North East Scotland Music School with their short recital featuring the music of romantic composers Grieg, Bériot and Tchaikovsky to set the scene for the production of Anton Chekhov’s short, witty play, “The Proposal”  which follows at 8.30 pm.

The programme begins with Grieg’s stormy and yet lyrical writing and continues with a technically demanding yet melodic movement from Beriot’s 9th violin concerto. The third item, Sakura, is a piece for solo violin based on a haunting opening melody. Jenna and Ben finish their programme with Tchaikovsky’s haunting Chanson Triste, full of characteristic Russian yearning.

NESMS, North East of Scotland Music School, is a charity that provides musical tuition up to Conservatoire standard by importing distinguished teachers to Aberdeen on a regular basis. The connections between Haddo House and the School are long-standing.
