Two of Britain's most talented musicians come together on Sunday 2 May to celebrate the bicentenaries of Romantic composers Frédéric Chopin (1810 – 1849) and Robert Schumann (1810 – 1856).

Critically-acclaimed cellist Guy Johnston joins the versatile pianist Melvyn Tan to play five pieces composed for cello and piano:

  • Mendelssohn Variations Concertantes
  • Chopin Sonata in G minor
  • Britten Sonata in C major
  • Schumann Adagio and Allegro in A flat major
  • Chopin Polonaise in C major

The concert starts at 8.30pm in the Hall at King's. Tickets cost £18, £12 (£5 student standby on the door only) and are available from the Cambridge Corn Exchange Box Office (01223 357851) and The Shop at King’s (01223 769340).

50 free tickets are available on the door for 8-25 year olds. This is funded by Cavatina Chamber Music Trust, who encourage young people's interest and involvement in chamber music.

This concert is parts of the Concerts at King's series.
