Messiah 15 December 2019 - Aberdeen Sinfonietta

Aberdeen Sinfonietta was formed in 1987, originally as a small ensemble of strings and harpsichord which played regularly in Aberdeen and also toured throughout Scotland. Since then it has substantially increased its membership in order to extend its musical repertoire and to give many of the area’s professional and outstanding amateur musicians the opportunity to perform in its concerts. Aberdeen Sinfonietta is now established as one of the foremost contributors to music- making in the North East of Scotland. In recent years it has had its own annual series of concerts in Aberdeen’s Music Hall.

Bryan Dargie graduated in Music from Aberdeen University and continued his studies at the Royal Academy of Music with Frederick Grinke and Sidney Griller. After a number of years of playing with leading London orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic and the London Mozart Players, he returned to Aberdeen, where he established himself as an in uential violinist and violin teacher, with wide experience of solo playing, of leading orchestras, in particular Aberdeen Sinfonietta, and of chamber music playing.
