He and his brother Braimah open with Ravel’s scintillating and virtuosic sonata for violin and cello with its bluesy, percussive inflections, before moving on to Mahler’s precious piano quartet movement prefaces the Hungarian Dohnányi’s Piano Quintet, in the cellist’s words, ‘this is just an amazing piece, surging with a wild energy.’

Sheku writes, ‘ it’s such a humorous and joyful piece which we as a trio really enjoy.’ Mahler’s precious piano quartet movement prefaces the Hungarian Dohnányi’s Piano Quintet, in the cellist’s words, ‘this is just an amazing piece, surging with a wild energy.’
