This concert is an opportunity for all music lovers to hear in the one varied programme some of the best loved masterpieces ever written for the violin. Each work represents a milestone and at the time, a breakthrough in the way the violin could be played and shows how much the violin has evolved over the centuries to the brilliant and expressive instrument we know and love today.

The Musicians:

He completed ABRSM grade 8 violin with distinction and has won prizes at the Knights Templar Music Competition in 2008 and 2009.
