On Sunday 3rd November at 7.00 there is a very special concert to be held in the Duke's Hall at the Royal Academy of Music. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the London Cello Society,there will be a gathering of some of the world’s greatest Stradivari cellos and an amazing bunch of cellists to play them. During the evening Charles Beare will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the LCS Artistic Adviser Steven Isserlis and I will be accompanying the following players in a variety of short pieces to show off these magnificent instruments. The concert finishes with some arrangements for all cellos together. (See the full programme here).
