Saskia Giorgini 2 cred- Christine Rechling.jpg
It has always been my intention to grow an international perspective to The Cumnock Tryst and this recital is a vital step along that path.
It is especially heartening that this solo piano recital by one of the music world’s most exciting young figures will take place in New Cumnock. Saskia Giorgini’s recital will be one of this year’s Festival highlights.
— Sir James MacMillan
