  • Hailed by Gramophone Magazine as ‘a remarkable talent’ and ‘One to Watch’, the concert violinist Alda Dizdari returns to present music from her most intimate album, “The Words of the Candle” a reflective programme of beautiful pieces for solo violin and violin and harp. Featuring the brilliant harpist Camilla Pay, the concert pays tribute to the passing of a great monarch, a nation trying to heal after a traumatic pandemic, and reflects on feelings of love, peace and the spirit of revival.

    From Bach’s Ciaccona, Debussy’s Reverie and Chopin’s Nocturne to Massenet’s sublime Meditation from Thais Opera, the evening is supercharged with healing powers, and set against the beautiful venue by candlelight will ensure the audience will be transported to a different world!
