From Vivaldi to Coldplay, something for all musical tastes

Greek-Albanian brothers Jon and Nikolas Gjylaci are returning to the High Peak by popular demand with their own unique blend of Classical, Latin, Jazz and traditional Mediterranean music.

The musical duo will perform at the latest in a series of Glossop Concert Society’s popular Sunday afternoon concerts on April 21 at 3pm, at Glossop Parish Church.

Regarded as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, Jon Gjylaci is currently touring the country promoting the release of his new album Valley of Echoes.

He will be joined on this occasion by violinist brother Nikolas, and accompaniment on double bass.

Series organiser Jeff Snowdon said: “The brothers played here a few years ago when they were still students at the Royal Northern College of Music. They were brilliant so we thought we had to invite them back.

“This time they will be joined by a double bass, and have put together a special programme for us with something for all tastes.”

The first half of the programme will feature songs from Valley of Echoes, followed by music ranging from Vivaldi to Django Rheinhardt, Piazolla - and even a bit of Coldplay.

Tickets, priced £10 (£7.50 concessions, £3 for full-time students and children), are available from Baytree Books and Peak of Health, Norfolk Square, or by ringing 01457 853137.
