Hi all, as there are a few fellow posters from the United Kingdom on here, and in case anyone is interested, I thought I would give advance notice of two concerts I'll be giving as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year. The venue is St Mark's artSpace (Fringe venue 125), 7 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2DP. (Map: http://ed.thestage.co.uk/venues/st-marks-artspace )

The programme will be as follows:

My composition: Fantasy on Bellini's La Sonnambula
Bellini-Fumagalli: Casta Diva (Norma)
Verdi-Liszt: Concert Fantasy on Ernani
Bellini-Thalberg: A te, o cara (I Puritani)
Rossini-Thalberg: Fantasy on Moses in Egypt

============= Intermission =================

Verdi-Cziffra: Concert Fantasy on Il Trovatore
Wagner-Brassin: Magic Fire Scene (Die Walkure)
Wagner-Liszt: Isolde's Liebestod (Tristan und Isolde)
My composition (genre pastiche): Thalbergiana

Concert date and times are Aug 20 and Aug 25, both at 1715. Tickets are 7; concessions are available.

If anyone's interested in coming along, pm me, or post in this thread!

In the long run, any words about music are less important than the music. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not worth talking to (Shostakovich)

Sadly, no banjo. Reminds me, really must brush up on Gottschalk..
