Violinist Charlotte Rowan is regarded as one of Britain’s leading violin virtuosos and has gained recognition for her dazzling virtuosity and gripping communicative power. Accompanied by Charlotte Stevenson on the piano, her concert will chart a fascinating lineage of the violinistic genre and follow a trail of composers through centuries and continents.
The programme will include Grieg’s Violin Sonata No. 3, Vitali’s Chaconne, Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy, and works by Wieniawski and Dohnanyi, and feature a trilogy of pieces about The Sun with Milhaud’s Brazileira to reflect the theme of this year’s Festival.
Charlotte Rowan will join Orkney violin maker Colin Tulloch for his workshop about violin making tomorrow morning at 11 am.
