We heard late on Wednesday that The Korros Ensemble are unable to give their recital on Saturday.
Despite the very short notice I am delighted to let you know that we have arranged a recital by Huw Wiggin (Saxophone) and John Lenehan (Piano).
Details of the concert together with the programme are below which we hope you agree is very appealing. We have been thinking for some time that we ought to have a saxophonist so although we are sorry about the sudden change we are confident that Huw Wiggin and John Lenehan will give us a superb recital.
Commonwealth Musician of the Year, First Prize and Gold Medal winner of the 2014 Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition, Huw Wiggin is one of the most popular saxophonists of his generation.
Huw studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and the Hochschule für Musik, Cologne, before gaining a Master’s Degree with Distinction in 2012 from the Royal College of Music. He is now professor of saxophone at the Royal Academy of Music in London and has given master classes at the Royal Northern College of Music, Chetham’s School of Music, NAFA in Singapore and the Universities of Calgary and Lethbridge in Canada. He has also been on the judging panel for major competitions including the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition.
With more than 70 albums to his credit, reflecting an enormous variety of genres and styles, John Lenehan ranks as one of the most versatile pianists on the classical scene today. Praised by the New York Times for his “great flair and virtuosity” and the (London) Times for “a masterly recital”, Lenehan has appeared in concerts throughout the World from Abu Dhabi to Zurich and from Aberdeen to Zimbabwe.
As a soloist he has appeared with orchestras such as the London Symphony at the Barbican and the Royal Philharmonic in the Royal Albert Hall. He has also collaborated with some of the leading instrumentalists of our time and is recognised as an outstanding and versatile chamber musician.
