JKL Duo – The International Poet at Victory Hall

The JKL Duo met in 2015 when Jacopo came from Rome to Glasgow to complete an Erasmus year at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Since then, their musical partnership has taken them to concert halls and recital spaces around Scotland. They bring to Aboyne their imaginative and creative program, ‘The International Poet’, featuring new music composed especially for them during lockdown, based on some of the most celebrated works of Robert Burns. They have imagined what Burns could have created, were he alive today, in a world where physical distance is no longer the obstacle it once was to communication, collaboration and creation. The traditional tunes are still recognisable, but all with an international twist:
Breton Fantasy on Ye Jacobites – by Laura Snowden
The Lea Rig – by Stevie Lawrence
The Deil’s Awa wi’ the Exciseman & Ye Banks and Braes O’ Bonny Doon – by Savourna Stevenson
John Anderson, My Jo – by Amit Anand
The Betrayed Melody (after Robert Burns) – by Francesco Leineri
My Love is Like a Red Red Rose – by Stevie Lawrence
Whare hae ye been sae braw, lad? – Fantasia on a Theme by Robert Burns by Vasily Antipov
Auld Lang Syne Samba – by Celso Machado
Ae Fond Kiss – by Roberto Kuhn Versluys


Victory Hall

The Victory Hall lies in the centre of Aboyne . Built as Aboyne's war memorial, it has recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. With a frontage built predominately of pink granite, inside the hammer beam roof makes for an uplifting venue and is great for intimate concerts The seating is all on the floor of the hall, and has full disabled access, and a disabled toilet.

Address - Victory Hall, Ballater Road, Aboyne, AB34 5HY

Phone no - 07786395927

Accessibility - Fully accessible for anyone with mobility problems, though the doors don't open automatically. We intend to have the outside door open on arrival. There is a disabled toilet. There are two parking spaces in front of the hall, which are suitable for the disabled, but we would want to know if anyone hoped to use them, so that they are "coned off" for other users.
