Simon Lepper & Sarah Field

Simon Lepper & Sarah Field

“Absolutely fabulous” as described on BBC Radio 3. Sarah’s professional work is diverse and wholly unique. Performances have taken her from the Brit awards with pop legends Westlife to Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto at the Southbank to the UK premiere of Stockhausen’s “Abduction” for saxophone and electronics.

Simon is an official accompanist for the BBC Singer of the World Rosenblatt Song Prize and Yehudi MenuhinViolin Competition. Together, he and Sarah will be playing works by James Whitbourne and Schulhoff, as well as the more familiar Debussy and Bach.

Fujita Piano Trio

Fujita Piano Trio

The Fujita sisters from Japan have been playing chamber music together since early childhood. They made a highly acclaimed debut at the Wigmore Hall in March 1999 and have since played in many international venues. One of their talents is that they play from memory which is highly unusual for chamber musicians.

They played trios by Haydn,Schubert and Mendelssohn. The last marked the 200th anniversary of his birth.
