12 Robin Michael & Savitri Grier

, Start Time: 22:00, End Time: 23:10 St Magnus Cathedral Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX


St Magnus Cathedral has one of the most beautiful acoustics for music and is especially resonant for solo instruments.  In this concert we hear two classics of the solo repertoire by Bach alongside more recent music.  George Benjamin’s miniatures were all written for friends and contain a lullaby, canon and lied and their intimacy contrasts with the large scale sonata by Kodály which was written in 1915 and is a powerful work filled with soulful melody and folk rhythm.
