Following his last-minute step-in last summer, we are excited to invite back the outstanding pianist, Charles Owen. Charles Owen enjoys an extensive international career performing a wide-ranging repertoire to outstanding critical acclaim. For this concert, Charles Owen brings together four iconic, interconnected 19th century musicians to create a programme of enormous emotional range, creativity, and invention. Piano music was forever changed by the genius of Mendelssohn, Chopin and the Schumanns, taking the instrument and its repertoire to the greatest of imaginative heights.
