We are delighted to welcome Charlotte back to the Banstead Festival, five years since she was a concerto soloist for us with the Yehudi Menuhin School Orchestra. She is currently studying at the Royal College of Music, where she won the violin competition in 2016, and also the Bach Prize. Her programme includes two spectacularly virtuosic works for violin solo, Bach's mighty Chaconne and one of Ysaÿe's 'takes' on Bach, and she is joined by Thomas Kelly, also studying at the RCM and winner of the Pianale International Piano Competition, for engagingly tuneful sonatas by Beethoven and Ravel.


All Saints' Parish Church, High Street, SM7 2NN


BACH: Chaconne in D minor for violin solo
BEETHOVEN: Violin Sonata No 8 in G major, Op 30 No 3
