Allan Neave Recital
See you there.
Years ago, when Lothian Region was still in existence, the Lothian Region Guitar Ensemble used to enjoy rehearsal weekends in Biggar or West Linton, preparing for concerts. One of the promising young players involved was Adam Brown. Now an even more accomplished performer, Adam is to give a free recital on Fri 5 November at 1:10 in Edinburgh’s St. Cecilia’s Hall (map here). Here is the programme:
Antonio Lauro: Virgilio
Alfonso Montes: Preludio de Adios
Leo Brouwer: Cuban Landscape with Bells
Fred Hand: Missing Her
