Walshaw Lodge Music Weekend

Music at Walshaw presents a weekend of classical concerts at Walshaw Lodge coming up on the 26th and 27th June 2010. This year, we are having two events, both featuring Moshe Friedman (cello) and Margaret Bruce (piano). Moshe and Margaret are two of the most popular performers that we have had in previous years and this year’s event is sure to be just as successful.

The artists have compiled a demanding programme of work including pieces by Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, Liszt, Chopin, Tučapský and Martinu. This year the great modern composers, Antonín Tučapský, will be joining us in person and his work will be celebrated as part of the programme.

The concerts are being held at the time of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival so there are plenty of other great cultural events happening in and around Hebden Bridge at the same time. In the past these concerts were officially part of the festival but this year they may be considered part of the ‘fringe’. Tickets for each event are £15.

Saturday 26th June at 3.oo pm  & Sunday 27th June at 11.00 am
