The young Sheku Kanneh-Mason is a cellist of enormous charisma and heart-stopping musicality. When we invited him to perform in our Master Series he chose to bring along his siblings and friends for an evening of chamber music. He and his brother Braimah open with Ravel’s scintillating and virtuosic sonata for violin and cello with its bluesy, percussive inflections, before moving on to Haydn’s Op. 29 trio, as he writes, ‘such a humorous and joyful piece which we as a trio really enjoy.’ Mahler’s precious piano quartet movement prefaces the Hungarian Dohnányi’s Piano Quintet, in the cellist’s words, ‘this is just an amazing piece, surging with a wild energy.’
Young Nottingham cellist, winner of BBC Young Musician of the Year 2016.
