A very welcome return to the festival by acclaimed cellist Gary Hoffman, performing together with our own Festival Artistic Director Wu Qian!

Alongside gorgeously expressive works by Mendelssohn and Chopin, their programme celebrates the folk tradition which RVW worked tirelessly to preserve here in Surrey and beyond, and gives us a glimpse of what might have been through David Matthews’ Dark Pastoral – a work built around the surviving fragment of the slow movement from Vaughan Williams’ unfinished 1942 Cello Concerto.
