  • Elena Urioste violin
  • Tom Poster piano

The husband and wife duo present a concert with a wedding theme threaded throughout – Messiaen wrote the Thème et variations as a wedding present for his first wife; Grieg wrote his second violin sonata on honeymoon; Clara Schumann was of course half of the most celebrated of musical couples and quotes her husband Robert in the first Romance; and the Simpson and Grant works were written especially for Elena and Tom during their alternative lockdown honeymoon.
