Still a pupil at Nottingham’s Trinity Catholic School, he studies at the Royal Academy of Music and is a member of the Chineke! Orchestra. His pianist sister, Isata Kanneh-Mason, joins him for this special recital, in which he combines the cellist-composer Cassadó’s colourful solo suite with Beethoven’s darkly tempestuous second sonata, ending with Shostakovich’s epic masterpiece from 1934. Concert programme: Cassado - Suite for Solo Cello Beethoven - Cello sonata in G minor, Op. 5, No. 2 Shostakovich - Sonata in D minor for cello and piano, op. 40
