On Monday, American flautist Linda Chatterton gave a recital at St. Martin in the Fields, her London debut. She was accompanied by pianist Matthew McCright and performed a programme mixing old material with new. The duo performed music by Bach, William Grant Still and Francois Borne along with a world premiere by American composer Brian Ciach (who spoke at the recital) and a piece by UK-based Irish Composer Ailis Ni Riain, commissioned by Linda Chatterton.
Music writer, Robert Hugill, described Linda’s playing as having a ‘lovely tone and a fine sense of line, with technical prowess which was always understated’.
Linda Chatterton and Matthew McCright are performing again, with a slightly altered programme, tomorrow evening at 8.30pm in the Kevin Barry Room at the National Concert Hall, Dublin. In addition to the pieces by Bach, William Grant Still, Francois Borne, Brian Ciach and Ailis Ni Riain (an Irish premiere for chainstitchembroidered), they will also perform works by contemporary composers Edie Hill and Kaija Saariaho in what is to be Linda’s Ireland debut performance.
