We are delighted that pianist Shelagh Sutherland will be joining this concert for the final work. The programme for the concert has been confirmed as below.

The Turkish pianist, who trained in Ankara, Oberlin Conservatory and at the Hans Eisler Hochschule in Berlin, has gone on to enjoy an international career, including as the leading saxophonist’s regular recital partner. Their programme includes a 1994 work by the individualist Graham Fitkin for which they are joined by another pianist, and another by a British singer, songwriter and cellist whose works straddle different genres and styles.
