Natalie Clein presents the darkly opulent Cello Sonata of gifted Dutch composer Henriëtte Bosmans, in a captivating programme of cello and song with Julius Drake and Ruby Hughes.

The bolt of exotic colour that is Debussy’s late Cello Sonata is prefaced with his dew-fresh, dream-like Chansons de Bilitis. Schumann’s visionary late piano pieces plumb profound emotional depths.

All three musicians come together for Brahms’s gorgeous late songs, Berlioz’s La Captive, a new commission from Judith Weir and Pauline Viardot’s poignant paean to the stars.

Date & start time:Thu 24 Oct 2019 – 7.30pm
