Free Fringe Music (National Museum Of Scotland)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2019

Every day of the Fringe, Live Music Now Scotland and The National Museum Of Scotland work together to put on an excellent free concert in spectacular surroundings. Today the emerging artists were Alla Voce Duo, comprised of mezzo-soprano Sarah Pistorius and pianist Alina Horvath. Pistorius placed her voice well and had an impressively lovely tone, while Horvath was a clever, supportive accompanist. They made a busy programme of Britten, Beethoven and traditional songs appear effortless! The theme was ‘Romantic Scotland’, though my favourite Britten song ‘A Charm’ from ‘A Charm of Lullabies’ somehow snuck in (and was rather good), so this Scot forgave the duo for straying from the Scottish theme!

National Museum of Scotland, until 25 Aug.
