Two young star musicians close our season with an exciting programme of music for french horn, that most heroic of instruments, and piano. Ben Goldscheider was a finalist in the 2016 BBC Young Musician and since then he has made his BBC Proms debut and appeared in such prestigious venues as the Berlin Philharmonie. Praised by International Record Review for his "musical intelligence and pristine facility", Richard has a busy solo career and frequenty broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. (Please note change of previously announced artist).

"Goldscheider [is] becoming a musical Bear Grylls, fearlessly leaping through its dangerous terrain. You find yourself with him every step of the way."
Huffington Post

"Guarrera’s Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto...from his opening, thundering chords...was always breath-taking, never boring."

Please note 8pm start time.  Preceeded by Annual General Meeting of the Club at 6.45pm
