Concert Series 2019-20
Since 2017 cellist Jamal Aliyev made his debut at the BBC Proms, won the Arts Club Sir Karl Jenkins Music Award and was selected by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT), and his debut CD Russian Masters was released by Champs Hill Records to critical acclaim. Highlights over the last year include appearances as soloist with the City of Birmingham Symphony, Philharmonia, Royal Northern Sinfonia, London Mozart Players, CBSO Youth Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra Simón Bolívar of Venezuela. He is joined on stage by his frequent recital partner, Jâms Coleman, a Welsh pianist who enjoys a rich and varied musical life performing as a soloist, chamber musician and vocal accompanist. They perform a programme of notable cello works from primarily the late 19th and early 20th centuries including Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Popper, amongst others.
The event is kindly sponsored and supported by the Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT), the first of a new partnership between YCAT and Royal Holloway University of London.
