Petworth Festival: Anthony Marwood (violin) & James Crabb (accordion)

The internationally acclaimed Anthony Marwood and James Crabb have been collaborating regularly since their first concerts together as a duo at the Wigmore Hall in London. One of the country’s most respected and versatile musicians, soloist, director and chamber musician Marwood was appointed an MBE in the 2018 Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for his services to music and was made a Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music in 2013.

The other half of what is a truly remarkable duo, James Crabb, is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading classical accordionists.

Their repertoire will include the rhythmic intensity of Astor Piazzolla, the lush romanticism of Korngold and James Crabb’s stunningly beautiful adaptation of Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending.
