International sounds from talented trio
THE Kosmos Ensemble will bring wild Gypsy fiddling, emotive Jewish and Greek music plus hot-blooded tango, alongside interpretations of Japanese, Polish and Sephardic songs to Nairn next Saturday, June 1.
Music Nairn present an evening of music at Nairn Community and Arts Centre from the Kosmos Ensemble, who have been praised for “redefining the relationship between classical and world music with their dazzling virtuosity, telepathic rapport and impeccable musicianship”.
Each member of Kosmos is an international soloist in their own right and brings individual flavour to the group.
Harriet Mackenzie (violin) is an internationally-renowned concerto soloist and has performed across five continents, while Meg Hamilton (viola) has made intensive study of klezmer music, which began her on-going fascination with music from Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Turkey, Greece, the Middle East and beyond.
Accordionist Milos Milivojevic – who is equally at home in classical or world music – studied classical accordion in his native Serbia, winning first prize at international accordion competitions in Italy, Denmark, France and Germany.
The programme Kosmos has crafted is inspired by music from all around the globe.
The concert will begin at 7.30pm, with tickets in advance or on the door from Nairn Community and Arts Centre.
