Eastgate Theatre, Peebles

Gina McCormack (violin) & Nigel Clayton (piano)

‘Nordic Rhapsody’

The Patron’s Concerts have been highlights of recent seasons, introducing our audience to some outstandingly talented young musicians, hand-picked for us by Gina McCormack. This year, Gina delights us by taking to the stage herself, along with her regular duo partner, Nigel Clayton, to bring our season to a memorable close.

Gina has chosen a Nordic-themed programme for us, bringing together familiar and not-so-familiar composers from Norway, Sweden and Finland. At its heart are sonatas by Norway’s best-known composer, Edvard Grieg, and his lesser-known Swedish contemporary, Emil Sjӧgren.

These substantial works are accompanied by a fascinating mix of shorter pieces from Sweden (a ‘Sentimental Romance’ by Wilhelm Stenhammar), Norway (a Romance by Christian Sinding, often seen as the heir to Grieg) and Finland (a Humoresque and three of the ‘Six Pieces for Violin and Piano’ by Jean Sibelius).

“…few can compare with violinist Gina McCormack.” (Dundee Courier)

“Nigel Clayton has a technique to die for…” (Westmorland Gazette)
