One of Britain’s most popular young violinists returns for the second of three appearances this season, performing mostly in the company of her regular chamber music partners. The programme begins with the many-voiced solo of Bach’s Chaconne and concludes with Brahms’s most dramatic and tightly argued piano trio, No. 3 in C minor, composed in 1886 while on a productive summer holiday in Switzerland. The violinist is joined by Kiev-born pianist Alexei Grynyuk and German cellist Leonard Elschenbroich.
