Music & Theatre

Hattie McGregor (from Rosemarkie) and Finlay Hay will be playing a series of songs newly arranged for cello and guitar.

Spanning from the Renaissance to the 20th century, the programme will include lute songs, a reimagining of English folk tunes, and ends with a Spanish flair of music by Cassado, the virtuoso Spanish composer who championed music for cello and guitar. The cello perhaps being the closest to the tenor voice, Finlay’s arrangements (among those by others) are tailored beautifully to this more unusual combination of instruments. The duo, which was originally formed at the Yehudi Menuhin School, also look forward to playing the first piece they ever performed together: Schubert’s Litanei.

Programme

John Dowland - Three songs of Tears
Frank Bridge - Four Pieces
Schubert - Du bist die Ruh, and Litanei
Vaughan Williams - 6 studies in English Folksong
Cassado - Lamento de Boabdil, and Serenade

Musician Biogs

Hattie started playing the cello aged 6 in Rosemarkie, before studying with Bartholomew LaFollette and Matthijs Broersma at the Yehudi Menuhin School. While there, she enjoyed performing in venues such as Champs Hill Records, and in masterclasses with musicians such as Colin Carr, Gary Hoffman, Alexander Chaushian, Tasmin Little, and the Endellion String Quartet. Now a first year student at the Royal Academy of Music in London, she looks forward to returning to the Stables. Hattie has been generously supported by the Agar Trust.

Finlay has grown up with the classical guitar, first plucking around ten years ago at the Portobello Music School. Since then, he has studied with Richard Wright at the Yehudi Menuhin School and at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where he is now in his second year. Last year, Finlay was awarded the North East Scotland Classical Guitar Society Award and 3rd place at the Altamira International. More recent projects include playing in quartet with Paul Galbraith and performing for the COP26.

The duo was originally formed at the Yehudi Menuhin School, and have enjoyed performing in events such as the Taproot festival.
