Music on the Isles 2019
August 2019 will prove to be a special occasion for Berneray. It marks the 20th anniversary of “Music on the Isles”, the annual chamber music and orchestral course for young musicians held every summer on the island.
Run by Caroline and Wolfgang Bergius (harpsichord & cello) together with their fellow musician friend, Ann Schneidt (viola) and more recently with former course participant Louis Vandory (violin), now studying with Julia Fischer and embarked on an international career, the Summer School promises exciting performances as a culmination of the intensive studies taking place on this beautiful and supportive island.
The talented pupils between the ages of 8 and 20 mainly from Germany, but in the past also from Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and Great Britain, have captivated audiences not only from the length and breadth of the Outer Isles, but from mainland Scotland and indeed in far away Bavaria.
This year, included in the 14 participants, will be several familiar faces plus new candidates from Attacca, the flourishing Youth Orchestra of the Bavarian State Orchestra, Munich. They are combining their talents to bring you performances of challenging and popular literature such as J.S.Bach’s 3rd Brandenburg Concerto,the Rumanian Dances by Bela Bártok and string quartet movements by Debussy, Haydn, Schumann and Shostakovitch. The sonorous strains of 4 cellos and a rendering of Handel’s ‘Entry of the Queen of Sheba’ played by the eldest and youngest of the violinists (Pauline and Stuart) promise to add flavour to the concerts.
Please make a note of the 3 concert dates, all taking place in the COMMUNITY HALL, BERNERAY at 7:30 pm
