The cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason is the 2016 BBC Young Musician and ‘without a doubt one of the brightest young stars in classical music’ (Daily Telegraph). He joins his sister Isata to play a programme that moves from the genial world of Boccherini to a sweeping and passionate sonata by Brahms, via two French works full of colour and imagination.

‘technically superb and eloquent in his expressivity, he held the capacity audience spellbound’ – The Guardian

‘electrifying, sincere and moving’ – Daily Mail

‘Above all, Kanneh-Mason’s playing radiates love of life, commitment and hope. Even the most mature and penetrating musicians don’t always manage that.’ – The Times
