It is not so well-known (south of the border) that it also has a high reputation in the world of serious music, with outstanding music schools, Conservatoires and University Departments producing world-class talent of all musical types.
Such a brilliant young Scot is pianist Christopher Guild who is to give the next recital at Sunderland Piano Society. He has won competitions, and prizes, already has two degrees (from the RCM, London) and is working on an advanced Diploma.
He will give a varied programme of music by Beethoven, Liszt, Debussy, Scriabin and Respighi. A lively mixture of the familiar and unfamiliar. Something for every music lover to enjoy.
