South Holland Concerts ends its 32nd season with a recital by violinist Alessandro Ruisi and pianist Dina Duisen at Spalding’s South Holland Centre this Saturday at 7.30pm.

Alessandro, first violinist with the Ruisi Quartet which also features his brother Max, is a graduate of the Royal College of Music, London, and has performed across the UK, Europe, Israel and the USA.

He is also a regular co-leader of the European Union Chamber Orchestra, who visited Spalding three weeks ago, and has performed in the past with the Philharmonia Orchestra and at the North Norfolk Music Festival last year.

Dina was born in Kazakhstan and started playing the piano herself aged five, making her performing debut as a 13-year-old.

She went on to study music in Texas, USA, before graduating from the Royal Academy of Music, London, in 2011.

Saturday’s concert features violin and piano sonatos by Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart and tickets are £13.50 for adults and 12 for concessions.

However, children and students in full-time education can get in free of charge.
