Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason

Cellist Sheku and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason are two people in their twenties from a now-famous English family. A book was even published, written by mother Kanneh-Mason, House of Music, about a household with seven musical children. Brother and sister like to make music together. The freedom and spontaneity they experience can exist because they have played together for so long. Tonight, they will perform a sonata program with great work.

Personal note

In Personal Noot, top soloists perform the most beautiful chamber music, interspersed with informal stories. With many sonatas, traditionally the most intense musical dialogue. The repertoire the two soloists have chosen prioritises the cello's strongest side: the singing. No other instrument controls the full range of the human voice so that the cello can produce a range of emotions. In none of the four sonatas is the piano limited to an accompanying role: in an alternation of virtuoso passages and warm harmonies, it is an equal conversation partner.
