Sheku & Isata Kanneh-Mason
Classical music’s star duo have performed together all over the world. Now they present an impassioned programme of Barber & Rachmaninov. Including each composer’s Cello Sonata and a selection of beautiful songs transcribed for cello. The siblings have performed the sonatas in many concert halls, and had prepared this specific programme for a tour when the pandemic hit. Instead they turned to the recording studio to share their music.
A celebration of the musical connection they share, having played together for as long as they can remember.
