Emmanuel Bach (Violin), Jenny Stern (Piano)
Dear Members and Friends
Just to remind you that our next Whitstable Music Society Concert is on Sat 23rd February at 7.30pm at our usual venue and features the remarkable young violinist Emanuel Bach with the pianist Jenny Stern.
Emmanuel has performed as a soloist and chamber musician at venues including Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, St George’s Bristol, St Martin-in-the Fields and St James’s Piccadilly. He won the 2018 Royal Over-Seas League String Competition. He has performed in the UK and abroad, playing concertos by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Paganini, Tchaikovsky, and others. In 2017, he played in a live-streamed masterclass conducted by Maxim Vengerov, on the Brahms Concerto. He was notably invited to play as a co-soloist with Anne-Sophie Mutter in Bach’s Double Concerto.
Jenny Stern studied at the Royal College of Music under the late Lamar Crowson and subsequently at the University of Natal, South Africa. On graduating, she was awarded the prestigious Emma Smith Overseas Scholarship, enabling her to return to London for further study where she now lives. Jenny is active as a performer, having appeared widely in South Africa and Europe as a soloist and chamber musician, and is an experienced accompanist. She is regularly invited to adjudicate festivals and competitions.
Their programme includes both the Beethoven Sonata No. 8 in G and the Debussy Sonata in G minor together with works by J.S. Bach, Lera Auerbach and Ysaye.
These musicians have a remarkable chemistry and a wonderful feel for the violin/piano repertoire so this concert is one not to be missed.
