- Steven Isserlis
World-leading cellist Steven Isserlis joins the Academy and its Music Director, virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell, for an incredible programme at Cadogan Hall. The two superstar soloists come together for a Brahms tour de force, the brilliant Double Concerto, which delicately balances violin and cello in a rich and elaborate musical love affair regarded as one of Brahms’ greatest late works.
The programme also features a curiosity in the form of the second movement of Schumann’s Violin Concerto, with an added codetta by Benjamin Britten. Reworked as an Elegy in memory of legendary British horn player Dennis Brain, it was discovered by Isserlis in the Britten archives and has not been performed since 1958.
