Music-Makers is a Scottish-based organisation dedicated to chamber music, as well as the solo instrumental and vocal repertoire. We aim to inspire others to enjoy and appreciate this music as much as we do, and to explore its vast and varied riches.
Under the artistic direction of Gusztáv Fenyő, we have acquired a reputation for innovative programmes, imaginative presentations and exciting performances.
Since formation in 1995, we have promoted a wide range of live performances, from festivals and themed concert series to masterclasses and summer schools, in a variety of settings, mostly within Scotland and always involving superb professional musicians. We have also supported young musicians at the beginning of their careers by providing training and performance opportunities. You will find further information under Events, with plenty of photos in our Gallery.
In 2018 we presented a unique keyboard series at Glasgow’s City Halls which combined Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes & Fugues with J.S. Bach’s ‘The Well-Tempered Clavier’ to highlight the connections between the two works. Full details here. Several videos from this series, together with other recordings, can be found on our Video/Audio page, with a more extensive selection on Gusztáv’s YouTube channel.
Throughout 2019/2020, Gusztáv Fenyő will be performing cycles of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas in Scotland and Hungary to mark the composer’s 250th anniversary. The Scottish cycle, at The Cathedral of The Isles, Millport, Isle of Cumbrae, commences on Sunday 19 May at 3pm. Full details here.
We look forward to sharing the joy of music-making with you.
