Our second Classical Mixtape Live event brings together a tantalising array of brilliant young musicians, performing a wide range of hugely appealing music in solo, duo and ensemble combinations. The programme includes JS Bach, Debussy, Michael Nyman, Piazzolla, Ravel and Villa-Lobos – and please check online nearer the time for programme updates. The concert climaxes with a specially commissioned arrangement of Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango featuring all five performers.
Jess Gilliam needs little introduction, after her performances at the 2018 Last Night of the Proms (Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park) and after being such a compelling finalist in the 2016 BBC Young Musician competition. Pianist Martin James Bartlett was outright winner of BBC Young Musician in 2014, and Chloe Hanslip has been a major presence in the classical music world since her early teens – recording her debut album, with the London Symphony Orchestra, when she was only 13. Remarkable Polish accordion virtuoso Bartosz Glowacki really has to be seen and heard to be believed, and Australian guitarist Andrej Lebedev equally captivates audiences with his elegant performances and range of repertoire.
Why not have a listen to some of our brilliant soloists and find out a little more?
Please note the pieces featured in these clips are not a part of the Classical Mixtape Live programme – the full programme for the concert will be published here shortly.
