‘We shall never become musicians unless we understand the ideals of temperance, fortitude, liberality and magnificence’ Plato
In our annual Master Series, we present four renowned artists in recital in the radiant acoustic of Hall One, an intimate space expressly designed for the purpose. We have asked them to play the music they love best, the greatest works of the classical canon.
All four artists in our 20/21 edition of Master Series are known for their individuality. We open with Alina Ibragimova, a violinist of rare and fiery inspiration who, along with her duo partner Cedric Tiberghien, offers a programme of colour and sensuality. Next is the young but already world-famous Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a hugely charismatic cellist, who will perform a chamber programme with his siblings and friends. In 2021 we welcome for the first time to Kings Place the revered French pianist Alexandre Tharaud for a night of French masterworks, and the series ends with another exciting venue debut, American cellist Alisa Weilerstein.
