Two of the brightest young stars in classical music, cello-piano sibling duo Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason appear in a vibrant chamber performance of cello sonatas by Bridge, Shostakovich,Brittenand Karen Khachaturian.
After winning BBC Young Musician in 2016, Sheku Kanneh-Mason became a household name worldwide in May 2018 after performing at the Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which was watched by nearly 35 million people globally. In January 2020, Sheku released his second album, Elgar, featuring the Cello Concerto, which reached No. 8 in the UK Official Album Chart, making Sheku the youngest classical instrumentalist and the first cellist in history to reach the UK Top 10.
Three years Sheku's senior, Isata Kanneh-Mason is quickly gaining fans of her own. Her debut album, Romance, drew popular and critical acclaim, entering the UK classical charts at No. 1 when it was released in July 2019, leading Gramophone magazine to extol the recording as “one of the most charming and engaging debuts” and Classic FM to praise Isata as “a player of considerable talent.”
This was a triumphant coming-out for these immensely engaging players: a star duo is born.
