Rivka Golani viola; Michael Hampton piano

Lisa Peacock Presents Thursday Lunchtime Showcases


  • Rivka Golani viola
  • Michael Hampton piano

Rivka Golani stands at the head of today’s supreme viola virtuosi – white-hot in delivery, kaleidoscopic in tone colours, electrifying in rhythmic attack, an obvious inspiration to composers’ Financial Times

‘Rivka Golani is a magnificent violist, with impeccable technique and both taste and power … she may be carving out a place of her own that no other performer on the instrument can reach.’ Fanfare Magazine

Michael Hampton performs regularly on major stages around the world as a soloist and chamber musician. He plays in all the major chamber music venues in London and at the Royal Festival Hall and is broadcast frequently on radio.
