Enjoy some little day music

5 February 2016

A free lunchbreak concert by the Trüb - Brown Duo will take place at 1pm on Saturday 6 February at Aberdeen Citadel, Castle Street.

The Cowdray Hall's popular weekly Lunchbreak Concerts have been temporarily relocated to the Citadel while the hall is closed until winter 2017, as part of Aberdeen Art Gallery's £30m redevelopment project 'Inspiring Art and Music'.

The concerts are usually held on Thursday lunchtimes so this weekend's concert is the ideal opportunity for anyone in town to enjoy a break from shopping, and to take time out to relax and enjoy some Chamber music.

Trüb - Brown Duo, which features Isabelle Trüb on piano and cellist Niall Brown, who are husband and wife, will perform Suite in C minor BWV 1011 for cello solo by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Sonata in A minor Op.36 for Cello and Piano by Edvard Grieg.

The series, which is programmed by Artists Advisor Dr Roger B Williams MBE, includes popular artists, and introduces musical stars of tomorrow, all of whom will entertain concert-goers on their lunchbreaks.

Deputy Leader of Aberdeen City Council Councillor Marie Boulton said: "It's great that while Aberdeen Art Gallery and Cowdray Hall are closed as part of a major redevelopment we continue to offer a programme of art and music to residents and visitors to the city, and indeed across the UK and abroad.

"No other city in Scotland hosts a free admission programme such as ours, which invites both amateur and professional musicians to perform. The programme brings high calibre national and international artistes to the city while providing an important performance platform for local musicians, including music students and school pupils."

The concerts are free but donations are welcome. All donations go directly towards supporting the performances and ensuring the continuation of the Lunchbreak programme.
