In­ter­na­tional duo bring their tal­ents to Ar­ran

The Arran Banner - - Leisure -

There is a real in­ter­na­tional flavour to the lat­est con­cert to be held by Mu­sic Ar­ran, for­merly known as the Isle of Ar­ran Mu­sic So­ci­ety.

They will present their next con­cert at the com­mu­nity theatre in Lam­lash on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 21, at 7.30pm when the young and vi­brant cham­ber mu­sic project, the Ge­los Duo, will per­form.

Con­sist­ing of Lithua­nian pi­anist Ruisne-Monika Pal­sauskaite and Span­ish sax­o­phon­ist Fran­cisco Sánchez Diaz, the pair met as stu­dents at the Royal Con­ser­va­toire of Scot­land, and formed the duo in 2016.

Their mis­sion is to ex­pand the reper­toire for pi­ano and sax­o­phone, and both of them have per­formed in­ter­na­tion­ally with some dis­tin­guished mu­si­cians. Monika has played with the Lithua­nian Cham­ber Or­ches­tra, and in fes­ti­vals in Lithua­nia, Es­to­nia and here in Scot­land. Fran­cisco has per­formed in fes­ti­vals here and in Spain as well as with a num­ber of UK or­ches­tras, in­clud­ing the Royal Scot­tish Na­tional Or­ches­tra and the BBC Scot­tish Sym­phony. He has also per­formed as soloist in sev­eral sax­o­phone con­cer­tos. The Ge­los Duo’s pro­gramme on Ar­ran will in­clude pieces by Schu­mann, César Franck, and James Macmil­lan.

Tick­ets will be avail­able at the door and, in ad­vance, on­line from Ar­ran Events at www. ar­ran­events.com, or from In­spi­ra­tions of Ar­ran shop in Brod­ick. Un­der-18s are ad­mit­ted free.
