This is the final concert in our Professional Series for the 2017/18 season. Still to come are our Young Persons Concert on 27th March and our Members Concert on 24th April.

The Rautio Piano Trio comprises Jane Gordon (violin), Victoria Simonsen (cello) and Jan Rautio (piano). This award-winning Trio is one of Britain’s most dynamic chamber ensembles, critically acclaimed for their innovative programming and captivating performances.

Fauré’s is the most recent of the three piano trios in the programme. He wrote it in 1922. Gabriel Fauré was born in 1845 and died in 1924. He is probably best-known for his Requiem. During his lifetime, the Romantic period came to an end and composers began to experiment with atonal music, compositions that lacked a home key. When he was born, Chopin was still composing and by the time he died, jazz and Schoenberg were on the scene.

The programme also includes the ‘Archduke’ Piano Trio by Beethoven, so called because it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, an amateur pianist, patron and friend. Fauré and Beethoven before him were both afflicted by deafness but continued composing. They both had the remarkable facility to hear complex music in their imaginations and write it down for others to play without any prospect of being able to hear it clearly themselves.

Emma Johnson: Clarinet Goes To Town Bothel & Kirkland

We welcomed five guests for the evening. Maggie Bell went through plans for the team darts evenings, the trip to the Rosehill Theatre and the meeting with Plumbland next month.

She then welcomed Sandra

Pringle from Woolsty Crafts of Wigton. Sandra talked about her move to the old post office in Wigton and how it gave her room for classes in various crafts. She went on to talk about the many varieties of wool she sells and showed us an intricate patterned jumper she had made. A unicorn hat showed off her crochet skills. She then went on to show the quilting products available and showed us how they made up in different designs in blankets. Maggie thanked Sandra for her talk that should inspire members to take up a craft.

The next meeting, on 7th March, is a joint meeting with Plumbland WI and a talk by Ken Graham on Life on the Shetland Islands.


An artist of unique skill and charisma, former BBC Young Musician of the Year Emma Johnson is one of the most popular fi gures on the concert scene and widely regarded as Britain’s favourite clarinettist, this is your opportunity to experience Emma Johnson’s unparalleled talent and rapport with her audience in the intimacy of Rosehill’s silk-lined auditorium.

Clarinet Goes to Town pays tribute to some of the genre’s all-time greats such as Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Sidney Bechet while exploring the roots of traditional American jazz. Emma is accompanied by pianist John Lenehan and Paul Clarvis on percussion.
