Sheku & Isata Kanneh-Mason

Presented by Saffron Hall

Tickets from £20

Price includes a commission of £1.00

Individually brilliant musicians with flourishing solo careers, when the Kanneh-Masons make music together, sparks really fly.

Their wide-ranging, exhilarating programme has strong Russian overtones (Britten’s sonata was requested, or more accurately demanded, by Mstislav Rostropovich), and the cello-piano combination coaxes music of ingenuity, formal elegance and mercurial wit from both Britten and Shostakovich. The wild energy of Sofia Gubaidulina’s solo piano piece seems a world away from the baroque, but its design and title owes much to Bach, so there is no better place to begin than his Cello Suite No.2.
