Sheku Kanneh-Mason

You can’t have missed the buzz about Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the 19-year-old British cellist whose debut CD took classical music to the top of the pop charts. In his first concert as our new Young Artist in Residence, he’ll bring all his poetry and passion to Elgar’s Cello Concerto: and what better piece to play in this week of remembrance? Andrew Manze has surrounded it with music inspired by the Great War: from Gary Carpenter’s musical memorial to an uncle who fell at the Somme to Le Tombeau de Couperin, the tender tribute to lost friends as well as two additional Ravel movements orchestrated by Liverpool’s very own Kenneth Hesketh.

The soloist encore at the end of the first half of the concert this evening was: Bloch - Abodah
