The young Sheku Kanneh-Mason is a cellist of enormous charisma and heart-stopping musicality. When we invited him to perform in our Master Series he chose to bring along his siblings and friends for an evening of chamber music. 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 Haydn’s Op. 29 trio, as he writes, ‘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.’

The Cassadó Ensemble is quickly building a reputation as a charismatic and dynamic group of young players all deeply committed to chamber music. Close friends from an early age, the ensemble comprises The Kanneh-Mason Trio (Isata, Braimah and Sheku Kanneh-Mason), Ayla Sahin and Alinka Rowe who have been performing together since they began their studies at the Royal Academy of Music.

This event is part of the Master Series at Kings Place.
