Kanneh-Mason Trio - Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Finnis, Brahms

Acclaimed internationally both as soloists and ensemble players, the Kanneh-Mason family are taking the classical music world by storm. This concert sees three of the seven young, gifted siblings come together to perform a virtuosic trio of trios, including the symphonic Piano Trio in G by Beethoven and Rachmaninoff’s Trio Élègiaque, comprising a single movement, masterfully constructed with subtle thematic variation.

The Kanneh-Mason Trio have performed in concerts throughout the U.K., in the USA and in the Caribbean, winning the Royal Academy of Music Harold Craxton Chamber Music Prize 2018. Prestigious appearances have included performing at the Barbican (Sound Unbound Festival), The Elgar Room at The Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.

Alongside the ensemble works, Sheku Kanneh-Mason – who shot to fame following his triumph as BBC Young Musician in 2016 and whose performance at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in 2018 was watched by over two billion people worldwide – will perform British composer, Edmund Finnis’, Five Preludes for solo cello. Sheku is signed with Decca Classics, for which he recorded Finnis’ work on his latest album, “Song”.
