Friday 5th May, 2023

St Martin in the Fields


Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 4JJ

This recital, celebrating the solo violin with Emmanuel Coppey, is a succinct snapshot of the extraordinary beauty and virtuosic capabilities of the instrument through the ages, from Bach to Kurtag. For sheer jaw-dropping virtuosity then look no further than Paganini’s two caprices, the inspiration for many other composers.

This Friday Lunchtime Concert is programmed in partnership with St Martin in the Fields. Tickets for students and under 16s only £5.
