Giovanni Sollima cello & Monika Leskovar cello

18th April 2015

Composer, improviser, performanceartist, and cellist of jaw-dropping virtuosity and flair…there’s simply no one way of describing the many-sided musical phenomenon that is Giovanni Sollima. He refuses to be categorized: the best way of describing this concert with fellow-cellist (and regular collaborator) Monika Leskovar is to say that it begins with the sublimely inventive music of baroque France, and ends deep inside Sollima’s own extraordinary musical imagination. And that the journey will be unforgettable.

Paul Lewis piano

26th May 2015

Paul Lewis was born in Huyton, and his reputation as an interpreter of the great classics of the piano repertoire has gone around the world. Famed for his Schubert interpretations, anything that Lewis chooses to play demands to be heard, and it’s fascinating that for this recital as part of his Liverpool residency, he’s gone for Beethoven’s visionary final trilogy of piano sonatas – playful, elusive and ravishingly beautiful; music that asks the very deepest questions. Lewis’s answers will be profoundly worth hearing.
