Two wonderful Russian masters based in London perform a wide-ranging programme of violin and piano works. Their programme begins with Bach and is followed by Prokofiev’s beautiful second sonata, adapted by the composer from his flute sonata. The premiere of a new work by the British composer David Braid is then followed by César Franck’s famous violin sonata from 1886, composed as a wedding gift for his friend, the famous violinist Ysaÿe.

  • Possessing an ‘exceptional range of touch and sonority’ (Classical Guitar Magazine), Laura Snowden is a winner of numerous national and international awards. Following studies at the Yehudi Menuhin School, she attended the Royal College of Music, winning the Guitar Prize in her first year.  Laura has performed as a soloist at venues including the Wigmore Hall, the Cadogan Hall and the Sage Gateshead, and has been selected for Young Artists Platforms with the Tillett Trust, the International Guitar Foundation and St John’s Smith Square.

Prior to the main evening concert, Laura will be performing another of Bach’s masterworks and Quatre Pièces Brèves by Frank Martin, a contemporary of Sergei Prokofiev.  Profoundly influenced by Bach’s music as a child, Martin draws on Baroque forms within a 12-tone style in these four pieces.  Both the Lute Suite and the Quatre Pièces Breves were also conceived by the composers themselves for other idioms (cello and piano/orchestra respectively), just as was Prokofiev’s Sonata in D.
