Elgar Birthplace Museum is about to host its first public concert, thanks to the opening of a new room named after the composer's daughter.

The concert is in the Carice Elgar Recital Room on Thursday, March 29, and is being staged in association with the Friends of the County Music Library.

The performers are pianists Duncan Honeybourne and Geoffrey Buckley.

Mr Honeybourne started his professional career with concerts at Birmingham's Symphony Hall and Dublin's National Concert Hall. He has appeared in broadcasts for the BBC and the Irish broadcasting company RTE and made a number of recordings, including one of the Andrew Downe's piano sonatas, a piece that he premiered in London.

Geoffrey Buckley has played around the world, from London to Moscow and Kuala Lumpur. He was head of keyboard studies at the Welsh College of Music and Drama until he left in 1990 to concentrate on concert work.

The two pianists will be performing piano duet versions of Elgar's In The South, Introduction and Allegro and Symphony No 2, as well as a range of Elgar piano solos.

The recital will begin at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 (£6 concs), available from the Elgar Birthplace Museum on 01905 333224, or on the door, although they are going fast. The concert replaces an earlier advertised performance by the Antara Quartet, cancelled due to illness.
