We are very pleased to welcome an exciting violin and piano duo – Peter Fisher and Margaret Fingerhut – in a unique concert that is part of the UK-wide commemorations of the centenary of the British composer Sir Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006). Following the recent release of their exciting new recording of Arnold’s complete works for violin and piano, Peter Fisher and Margaret Fingerhut will perform Sonata No.1, Op.43 and Five Pieces, Op.84.  

This invigorating programme will begin with the beautiful and impressionistic Debussy Sonata, the last work he completed and his only work for these two instruments. They will then perform two important works of Sir Malcolm Arnold – his Sonata no.1, Op. 15 and Five Pieces Op.84 – in which he used more angular and iconoclastic musical language to create wonderful and compelling musical textures.

Following the interval, this programme features our own Plymothian composer Clive Jenkins’ beautiful and evocative Pastorale and Allegro. We then conclude the evening with Beethoven, a further tribute to this master musical storyteller in his 250th year, with his late and deeply personal Sonata in G major, Op.96.  

Join us for this special concert spanning an extraordinary spectrum of musical expression.
