The programme includes music by Schumann, Schubert, Debussy, Chopin and Beethoven. The concert opens with Beethoven’s Sonata in C minor, Op.13 Pathetique, one of the composer's most beautiful and haunting pieces.
The season continues with a number of Bradford Cathedral debuts: we welcome cellist Pieter Wispelwey accompanied by pianist Danny Driver, Romanian pianist George Todica and London based trio Pelleas Ensemble with Henry Roberts, Luba Tunnicliffe and Oliver Wass.
The 2018-19 Chamber Season closes with a performance from Emma Johnson, one of Britain’s favourite clarinettists who is joined by the award-winning Gildas Quartet.
