The concert which will be broadcast is entitled ‘Om åkander, månseskin, vemod og romantic’ (‘To waterlilies, moonlight, melancholy and romanticism’), and will take place on Saturday 5 October at Knudsen’s Hall, Holstebro. Rachel will feature in Joseph Holbrooke’s Nocturne, op. 57, no. 1, “Fairyland” for flute, viola and piano, alongside Janne Thomsen and Alasdair Beatson, before being joined by Christoffer Sundqvist for Schumann’s Märchenerzählungen, op. 132 (Fairytales).
