AFTER proving a big draw for audiences in recent years, ‘Music at Paxton’ returns to Berwickshire this week and once again there’s an eclectic mix of music.

This year’s line-up at Paxton House includes a return visit by the renowned violin and piano duo, Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien (pictured); Schubert’s Trout Quintet performed by the Scottish Ensemble and pianist Alasdair Beatson, a solo harpsichord recital by the Iranian born Mahan Esfahani, who will also be doing a question and answer session with the audience, and the Doric and Carducci String Quartets.

Baritone William Berger and the well known pianist and broadcaster Iain Burnside will present a programme entitled ‘Insomnia’, and the programme also features local guitarist Simon Thacker in a solo recital, Arctic Winds, Pure Brass and the Sutherland Duo.

New this year is a short ‘taster’ concert by Alasdair Beatson on, Friday, July 13.

This event is free of charge and unticketed, and doors open at 5 for a 5.30pm start.
