This concert is a chance to hear a true virtuoso violinist who won the Royal Overseas League String Competition 2018. Emmanuel is rightly gaining increasing recognition as an exceptional soloist, and as a chamber musician. Recent performances include recitals at Wigmore Hall and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and a live-streamed masterclass on the Brahms Concerto with Maxim Vengerov. He is accompanied by South Africa born pianist Jenny Stern, a superb accompanist and chamber musician. She has recorded extensively for radio and television, gives masterclasses at venues including Dartington Summer School of Music, and teaches at the Royal College of Music. Their interesting and varied programme includes masterworks by Beethoven and Grieg, delightful miniatures by Kreisler, as well as pieces by Ysaye and Fribbins – two composers whose work deserves to be heard much more widely.
