Morning Concert II Chloë Hanslip & Danny Driver

Two very different Beethoven sonatas – the first genial and relaxed, the second a towering, heroic drama – form the backbone of this recital. Between them, Messiaen at his most accessible – a set of variations on a gentle, lyrical theme composed for his first wife as a wedding gift.

Instantly engaging, thanks to the warmth and clarity of Hanslip’s playing and the obvious rapport between the musicians.

The Strad

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
