Petworth Festival: Royal Academy Lunchtimes: Daniel Stroud (violin) and Hanzhi Zhang (piano)

James MacMillan – Kiss on Wood 

Ravel – Violin Sonata No. 1 (Posthume)

Respighi – Sonata in B Minor 

Dvorak/Kreisler – Songs My Mother Taught Me

In a change to the previously published programme, we are joined by two fine young Royal Academy musicians who present an imaginatively-designed programme with repertoire ranging from the contemporary classic, James MacMillan’s Kiss on Wood to Respighi’s highly attractive Violin Sonata in B minor, the work that catapulted him into the international spotlight as a composer. 

Scottish violinist Daniel Stroud (22), recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with First Class Honours. Having won the Harrison Gowland Scholarship, Daniel is currently studying for his Master of Arts degree at the Royal Academy under Michael Foyle and Ying Xue. He also won the prestigious 2021-22 Help Musicians ‘Parikian Award’, and received the Harrison-Frank Family Foundation Award, which is awarded to one outstanding violinist from the Royal Academy.

Chinese pianist Hanzhi Zhang is currently undertaking an Advanced Diploma in Piano Performance at the Royal Academy of Music under Michael Dussek and Andrew West, supported by a RAM scholarship.

Tickets: £12.50 (18 and under £5). Visit the Petworth Festival website for further details.
