Jewels in the Crown

7th - 14th July, 2024

A S&F favourite, violinist Natalie Chee returns in 2024 for a brilliant and unusual program featuring Beethoven’s mighty ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata with Kathryn Selby. Accomplished performer and mentor Lloyd Van’t Hoff opens the program with what is considered the greatest work composed for clarinet and piano with Brahms’ second sonata followed by two of the most popular and extraordinary works for violin, clarinet and piano in a Selby & Friends first – after more than 30 years, we finally have an opportunity to program Kathy’s childhood favourite, Béla Bartók! Contrasts is widely considered one of the seminal works for this instrumental combination and the composer’s famous charming Romanian Dances rounds out a spectacular and virtuosic concert experience.
