The Scholfield-Clarke Duo embark on a tour of Scotland, supported by the Tunnell Trust, which comprises six concerts.
his concert is part of a tour of Scotland, supported in part by the Tunnell Trust. The duo will present a ‘red, white and blue’ programme which explores the rich diversity of the saxophone’s original repertoire, with works from French, British and American composers. With jazz-tinged, impressionist pieces, luscious romances and angular minimalism, the duo will take audiences on a journey through the life of the classical saxophone over the past 100 years. We are delighted that the programme includes a new commission from locally-based composer John De Simone which has been specially written for concerts in this tour. John is a Senior Lecturer specialising in Music Composition at the University of Aberdeen. He joined the Inverurie Music board in 2022 and we are thrilled that his work will be included in this concert.
