‘Front row’ seats for classical masterworks
Recently relaunched Bath Recitals, bringing some of the finest young professional talent in classical music to the city, starts its new season with MASTERWORKS on 24 April at the prestigious Pump Rooms.
Featuring New Zealand violinist, Benjamin Baker and Hungarian pianist, Daniel Lebhardt, two international young artists whose electrifying partnership brings classical masterpieces to life.
The programme includes the youthful melodic lyricism of Schubert’s 2nd Sonatina, the virtuosic flamboyance of Britten’s concert suite, a beautifully serene Elergy by Finzi. The recital concludes with a hugely popular concert favourite, Franck’s Violin Sonata.
Chairman David Gregory said: “We are very excited to be starting our 2016 programme with this dynamic collaboration between these two young artists. They will bring a colourful and engaging selection of classical masterpieces to our audiences.”
Tickets are now on sale at just £15, or £14 with a Discovery Card, online at www.bathrecitals.com or in person from Bath Box Office, in Abbey Churchyard.
This concert also sees the launch of Bath Recital’s new Front Row membership scheme which allows concert goers to gain even more enjoyment from performances, whilst supporting the organisation’s valuable work with young artists. Front Row members can enjoy free programmes, priority seating, ‘In Conversation’ events and a glass of bubbly at the annual Front Row reception. All whilst ensuring Bath Recitals continues to give a platform to the next big artists.
David added: “Our Front Row membership scheme enables people to really engage with the important work of Bath Recitals. I know many people will take this this opportunity.”
