Our concert on Sat 28th April will be the final concert of our 2017/18 season and you might be forgiven for thinking that we've saved the best 'till last!
Trio Shaham, Erez Wallfisch consists of three of the finest musicians in Europe today. The are currently on a UK concert tour and Saturday 28th April is the last day of their tour so we were very fortunate to secure them for Whitstable.
Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was founded in 2009 and comprises three of the finest international instrumentalists performing today. Playing chamber music together at the Pablo Casals Prades Festival Hagai Shaham and Raphael Wallfisch recognised an immediate musical synergy. Arnon Erez joined them for trio concerts in Lucerne and the Netherlands later that year and the Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was established. Since 2009 the Trio have performed, broadcast and recorded widely throughout Europe and Israel, giving concerts in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, France, Israel and Spain. They perform regularly at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and will return there for performances in 2017/18 season. Similarly, they have been chosen by the Wigmore Hall to present the complete Beethoven Piano Trios in 2020, Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year. I think that probably speaks for itself!
Their programme for Whitstable includes:

We particularly thank our sponsors Roger and Heather Parry and Pockocks Solicitors of Whitstable who have been very generous in their support for this concert. Our grateful thanks are especially due to Canterbury Arts Council for their sustained support over many years.
We will be finishing our current season on a high so I very much hope you will be able to join us for this very special concert.
