This is a real treasure of a concert with exceptionally talented players – one not to be missed.

A highlight of this concert: The incredibly versatile Roberto Carrillo-Garcia will captivate and entertain with a really surprising piece for solo bass called ‘Failing’ and also play classical guitar with equal expertise – that’s well worth seeing!
