Amadeus Duo – Margaret Preston on flute and Alina Bzhezhinska on harp present a programme of Chopin’s music. Their arrangements give an interesting slant on Chopin’s piano music, as the evocative and sensuous combination of flute and harp take a fresh look at some of the most popular piano repertoire. They will also play the works of composers who influenced Chopin on his travels in Scotland.
The girls have toured this concert to many venues in UK and in Ukraine as part of the international celebration of Chopin’s 200th Anniversary (1810-1849). The tour will end in October with a concert at RSAMD where Alina was appointed Harp Lecturer in 2008. The programme which is designed to be audience friendly is narrated by Margaret and Alina who as well as playing their special arrangements, present amusing and revealing extracts from letters and commentaries from the last year of Chopin’s life.
