The sensational Kanneh-Mason family from Nottingham have been the subject of BBC documentaries and radio programmes. Isata Kanneh-Mason makes her Worthing debut playing the brilliant Piano Concerto by Clara Schumann (née Wieck) a true heroine of 19th Century German romanticism.
Isata has recently signed a recording deal with Decca Classics and has performed at many of the world’s major concert halls including the Zurich Tonhaller and the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam.
Beethoven’s epic Eroica Symphony was composed in honour of Napoleon’s revolutionary campaigns across Europe but he scrubbed out Napoleon’s name when the latter proclaimed himself Emperor of France.

"…it was thrilling to hear and watch Nicola Benedetti in a truly risk-taking performance that lived so much in the body and fused the sinews of the violin and the nerve-system of the player."
