Exchange Talk, RCS, 'Meanwhile, in 1808 ...'

Research output: Contributions to conferencesPaper



The first of the Conservatoire's Exchange Talks for the year 2016-17: an illustrated talk about the music that might have been heard in Scotland in 1808 - the year of Beethoven's benefit concert. (The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra is reconstructing that concert - and at our own Exchange Talk, I have been looking for other music being played at the time.)

Fiddler Bernadette Kellermann and cellist Wallace Calvert share some traditional tunes. Also mezzo-soprano Svetlina Stoyanova, pianist Jose Javier Ucendo Malo, cellist Marina Sanchez-Cabello, violinist Michelle Dierx and harpist Ewelina Brzozowska, performing an early Beethoven Scottish song setting, a harp and piano duet by Sophia Dussek, and a piano trio by Kozeluch.
