Two exceptional soloists perform sonatas by Britten, Bridge and Franck

Adrian Brendel cello
Joanna MacGregor piano

Britten Cello Sonata in C major Op. 65
Bridge Cello Sonata in D minor H.125
Franck Cello Sonata in A major FWV8

Two of the country’s most well respected musicians join forces for a special Brighton Festival Lunchtime Concert. Adrian Brendel, one of the most versatile cellists of his generation, performs with the acclaimed pianist Joanna MacGregor, who is now also Music Director of the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra. In this epic programme, Britten’s brilliantly conceived and darkly witty sonata is partnered by a hauntingly beautiful work by Frank Bridge, composed in memory of the Great War, and one of Franck’s most deeply romantic works, which has been described as ‘a voyage of the soul.’
