Georgia Russell – Viola: Sunday 29 May raised £300 for new organ fund

The programme was:

  • Enescu – Konzertstuck for viola and piano
  • Hindemith – Sonata for viola and piano op. 11 no. 4
  • Purcell – Chacony in G minor
  • Kenji Bunch – The 3 Gs
  • Mark Russell – For Lise

Georgia’s Russell’s programme was wide-ranging, technically demanding and very exciting. The Kenji Bunch was like a Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page guitar solo. The Purcell Chaconny was dramatic and mournful, the Enescu a typical virtuosic showpiece and the Hindemith lean and sinuous with incredible musical line. Mark Russell wrote ‘For Lise’ when his sister died in 2015 – it’s haunting, like an unanswered question.

Retiring collection was in aid of the Project 900 St Giles Organ Appeal
