What's on in 2018
Violin Sonata in G minor
Violin Sonata No 10 in G major
Rhapsody No 1 for Violin and Piano
Violin Sonata No 3 in D minor
From the airy, expansive beauty of Beethoven’s G major sonata to the soulful gypsy romance of Bartok’s Rhapsody, from the sweetly nostalgic melancholy of Debussy’s last work to the heart-wrenching drama of Brahms’ D minor sonata this programme has everything.
The superb Dutch violinist Liza Ferschtman and our talented Artist in Residence Roman Rabinovich promise an afternoon of ravishing sounds and high emotion.
"The phenomenal Liza Ferschtman tells extraordinary stories with her Guarneri Del Gesù, a giant of a violin."
"The enthusiasm of Rabinovich's joyful playing is infectious."

The grassy hill beside the River Tyne on which this historic church stands has been a place of worship since at least the twelfth century.
Indeed, its origins may go back far into the Dark Ages, to the time of St Baldred, whose name is associated with an ancient well beside the river close to this church and to a whirl, or pool, in the river itself.
The present church is a fascinating amalgam of different architectural periods. The main body is Georgian - built in 1770 on the site of the nave of the earlier mediaeval church. Of that only the fine chancel survives, while the bell tower is 17th Century.
