A Scott Sonata for flute and harp
Equinox Duo (Esther Beyer, harp and Mina Middleton, flute) began playing together as members of the National Youth Orchestra, but it was not until they were both studying at the Royal Academy of Music that they started performing as a duo. Since then, they have performed in various concerts around England, including The Hambleden Concert Series and Barnes Music Festival. Their programme for this concert includes jewels of the flute and harp repertoire. Fantasy for flute by Malcolm Arnold is a nod to the composer’s centenary and the rest of the programme predominantly includes British composers, finishing with the uplifting Scott sonata with its flamenco and jazz influences.
