Friends of Wighton Cappuccino Concert tomorrow ...

The Friends of Wighton are pleased to announce their Cappuccino Concert in Dundee on Saturday 16th October.

The event starts with coffee and newspapers, served from 10.30am. The music will begin at 11am. Admission is £5.

Historical keyboardist Henry Lebedinsky (pictured right) will be performing a concert of French harpsichord music.

Henry, from North Carolina, is visiting Dundee to research baroque Scottish music, using the important collection of old Scottish music books held in Dundee Central Library's Wighton Collection.

Henry is a specialist in historical music on organ, clavichord and harpsichord, performing regularly in America with chamber ensembles and baroque orchestras. For Saturday's concert he wil be using the Wighton Harpsichord, a fine two-manual French instrument that is kept in Dundee Central Library.

The programme will include late 18th century music by Galuppi, Palschau and Bortniansky as well as an air by Scottish baroque composer Robert Mackintosh (c. 1745-1807)
