Matilda Lloyd’s stunning playing as winner of the 2014 BBC Young Musician brass final launched her on an international solo career that has taken her to the BBC Proms in London and orchestras in Germany, France, the U.S. and South Africa. She is partnered by Scottish-born pianist Martin Cousin in a colourful programme that ranges widely from the baroque virtuosity of Marcello to English composer Deborah Pritchard’s haunting sound portraits inspired by painter Hughie O’Donoghue’s landscapes of the Battle of the Somme.
The truly memorable artist on the bill is Matilda Lloyd... She's remarkable.
Martin Cousin . . . a master in the art of the tapered phrase, the dying fall and the precisely weighted texture
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.
