The Richter-Housden Duo

Friday 5 May

Join The Richter-Housden Duo at historic Lauderdale House to hear music on violin and guitar. An evening of contrast: from Manuel de Falla‘s fiery Spanish songs to Schubert‘s romantic Ständchen as well as the Australian composer Phillip Houghton‘s mysterious and wild contemporary piece 'Night Music'. We are also giving the first performance of Hartmut Richter‘s Sonata for Violin and Guitar.
