The Programme for 2019


Sunday 17 February:  Ines Zimmerman and Kevin Duggan

‘Teutonic Tunes’ for the Recorder and Organ: Telemann, Muffat, CPE Bach, Quanz and Kirnberger

Ines Zimmermanm

Ines studied recorder and traverso in Berlin, Amsterdam, Bologna and Copenhagen. She established good contacts with fellow musicians during her long travels, which resulted in frequent invitations  to perform throughout Europe.

Ines loves to combine music and literature in one programme – language as the food of music and vice versa. In addition to teaching, she is busy writing reviews, composing theatrical music and and interviewing colleagues for scientific journals.

Kevin Duggan – organist – choir trainer – chamber musician – composer

Born in southwest England in 1959, Kevin Duggan read music at Bath University and the Royal College of Music in London, studying organ with Dudley Holroyd, Richard Popplewell and Nicolas Kynaston and taking part in masterclasses given by Johannes Geffert and Gillian Weir. He won the RCM Clavichord Prize in 1981 and the West of England Organ Competition in 1983, also participating in international organ competitions.

Between 2004 and 2015 Kevin was Organist of St. Nicolas, Rønne, on the Danish island of Bornholm. He was the driving force behind the music festival Skt. Nicolai Musiksommer as well as a large number of other concerts. He was also a tutor for Zealand School of Church Music.

Since April 2015 Kevin has been Director of Music at Dunblane Cathedral in Scotland, and he was appointed Musical Director of The Rosenethe Singers in 2017. During the last year he has performed in Scotland, Denmark, Latvia, New York and Los Angles.
