Stuck for something to do tonight? If you’re quick, you can hop down to Highclere Castle which is holding a stunning concert this evening as part of the Newbury Spring Festival.
Classical music enthusiasts will be delighted with performances from violinist Alexander Sitkovestky, cellist Alexander Chaushian and pianist Yevgeny Sudbin, the evening’s musical entertainment will include Grieg’s Violina Sonata No. 3 in C Minor Op 45, Franck’s Sonata in A major for cello and piano; Notturno in E flat major Op 148 from Schubert and Brahms Piano Trop in C major No. 2 Op 87.
Yevgeny Sudbin is one of the foremost international pianists of his generation and appears in advance of his solo Festival recital with fellow Russian, Alexander Sitkovetsky, violin soloist with Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra for their Festival visit. Armenian cellist Alexander Chaushian performs regularly with them both.
This special concert marks the trio’s public debut and their attractive programme includes two of the most popular sonatas of the late romantic period with two contrastingly powerful trios by Schubert and Brahms, which showcase each player to maximum effect.
