Tim Kliphuis Trio | 17 June

Date/Time
Wednesday 17 June 2020
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

“Here, with The Stirling Queen, Tim Kliphuis, with imaginative use of reels, waltzes, laments and more has given us five definitive periods in the life of Queen Margaret, and in music we follow her journey by boat from Denmark to Scotland, marriage to King James, her settling into her new life and role, political intrigue and finally her death at all too young an age.” The Queen’s Hall

Imagine being married off to a Scottish king when you are 14 years old. Sailing across the sea from Denmark to be the wife of someone you hardly know. Your father gives away Shetland and the Orkneys as your wedding present.

The Stirling Queen is a brand new piece with Scottish and Nordic roots, with influences of gypsy, baroque and minimal music. It tells the story of Queen Margaret’s youth, her marriage to James III and her early death at Stirling Castle.
