With playing described in the press as ‘unforgettable’ and ‘a wonder’, violinist Fenella Humphreys enjoys a busy career combining chamber music and solo work. She has broadcast for the BBC, Classic FM, and German, Canadian, Australian and Korean radio and TV.

Libby Burgess collaborates regularly with some of the finest singers and instrumentalists of her generation. She regularly performs in the UK’s major concert halls and festivals and appears on BBC Radio 3. Libby is Artistic Director of New Paths, a major new festival of concerts and education events in Beverley, which took place for the first time in April 2016.

Libby and Fenella will perform a programme which harks back to folk and traditional music, including works by Bartok and Stravinsky, and features Beethoven’s beautiful, ethereal Sonata no. 10 in G major.

Violinist Fenella Humphreys responds to its elegiac reflection and technical display at top flight level, offering emotional depth and weight of tone.
