By mid-December 2020, we had high hopes of launching a short series of live concerts from January to March 2021 - the second half of the 2020/21 season we had originally planned. The opening concert of that series was scheduled for 10 January 2021, and featured the exciting young Kowalski-Reyes Duo, whose phenomenal performance of the Poulenc Cello Sonata created such a sensation at our Patron’s Concert in 2019.

Sadly, due to the resurgence of Covid-19, their concert had to be cancelled, but in its place we are delighted to offer an online recital by the duo, specially recorded in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland by RCS Artistic Planning.

For this special recital, introduced by Madelyn, the duo have chosen Schubert's ever-popular 'Arpeggione' Sonata, flanked by two wonderful French cello sonatas, by Debussy and Poulenc.

Whilst nothing can match the thrill of a live concert, we are confident that this recording will not only provide great enjoyment but also whet your appetite for the time when live music returns. We hope that the Kowalski-Reyes Duo will be able to join us live in Peebles to celebrate that joyous time.

Music in Peebles is grateful to the Artistic Planning team at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for producing this recording, and to the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles, for hosting it for us.
