Chopin After Lunch (ROSL Arts)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

As part of the Music@100 Princes Street series, the Over-Seas League are  staging Chopin and other romantic composers performed by international  musicians. This show was given by ‘Y-Squared’, comprising Yasmin Rowe on piano and Yelian He on cello, who gave renditions of Chopin’s  ballades and waltzes and Rachmaninov’s ‘Sonata For Cello And Piano In  G’. Rowe started the set with a heartfelt piece on piano and was then  joined by He who added much energy and animation. Together they  demonstrated the dramatic presence of the music beautifully. In the end it  was Rachmaninov’s work which won the day. The music was followed by complimentary tea and shortbread in a room overlooking the castle; a  superbly relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

Royal Over-Seas League, 16, 19, 21, 23 Aug, 2.00pm.
