Programme Notes

Chamber music is often called "the music of friends", a particularly apt description for this concert.  There is great joy in the musical friendship of Ian Munro and Howard Penny. These renowned performers weave piano and cello together in sounds of profound beauty, harmony and balance.  Together they express the warmth and liveliness of works by three members of the Mozart family ( a rare treat for a concert audience), the dramatic intensity of Chopin and the sparkling elegance of Hummel. 

Detailed programme notes for each work will be available nearer to the concert date.
