Santiago Cañón Valencia and Katherine Austin

This concert promises to be very special. It is a fund-raising concert featuring Santiago Cañón Valencia (cello), accompanied by Katherine Austin (piano) . They will be playing works by three Russian composers

  • Prokofiev's Sonata for Cello and Piano 
  • Schnittke's Sonata for Cello and Piano, and
  • and Shostakovich's Sonata in D minor for Cello and Piano 

100% of the ticket price will be go towards helping fund the production of a double-CD that Santiago and Katherine will be recording shortly after the concert on the Atoll label. This recording will be Santiago's second, and will include the above three virtuoso pieces and others. 

(Not surprisingly, Santiago's first CD on this label has received very favourable reviews. The Strad magazine reviewer went so far as to say that  Santiago ".... offers one of the most persuasive programmes of solo cello music I’ve heard to date.") 

Our target is to raise $2,500 from the evening. To celebrate the occasion of such a special concert, and also to celebrate Gregor's birthday a few days later, Gregor is donating a very special bottle of wine!
