Music in the Museum: Violin Duo from Rising Stars

Wardown House, Museum and Gallery 


Sinfonia Verdi presents

 

A classical music performance taking place in the stunning Drawing Room, surrounded by the museum's unique art collection and with spectacular views overlooking Wardown Park.

 

Line up:

 

A violin duo from rising stars; Lucia Veintimilla and Tim de Vries.

 

Two rising stars, the Spanish violinist Lucia Veintimilla and Dutch violinist Tim de Vries have performed as soloists in many parts of the world. They present a programme ranging from baroque to contemporary music, the grand finale being one of the real gems of the repertoire: the intensely exciting and virtuosic Sonata for Two Violins by the legendary violinist Eugène Ysaÿe (1858- 1931).

Wardown House

Wardown House, Museum and Gallery is situated in the beautiful landscaped Wardown Park, on the outskirts of Luton town centre. The house was formerly the home of the Scargill family, then a military hospital and is now a museum and gallery.
