Ensemble Hesperi at the Wighton Collection, Dundee
Earlier in April, Tom and I made our long-awaited trip to the Wighton Collection in Dundee, a wonderful collection of mainly eighteenth and early nineteenth century music of international importance. We were given a very warm welcome, and were incredibly fortunate to be allowed to explore the collection to our heart's content. We only scratched the surface (we're going to return for a few days later this year!) but already discovered some unusual and unperformed repertoire - watch this space! And what a treat to see a manuscript of James Oswald's Airs for the Seasons, in his own hand!
We particularly enjoyed giving a lunchtime concert in the beautiful dedicated room at Dundee Central Library. An entirely Scottish Baroque programme, after which the audience clamoured for more! So many thanks to the Friends of Wighton for hosting us, and for helping us explore - we'll be back!
