Stradivarius Piano Trio is an internationally recognised virtuoso ensemble which has performed extensively across the globe taking their engaging warmth and enthusiasm to share their music to Asia including holding a residency in Macau University. Stradivarius Piano Trio celebrates nature, diversity and our communities which we bring together at concerts in the county’s great estates and churches.
For this evening’s concert, we bring together two of the county’s great composers: Ralph Vaughan Williams, who wrote The Lark Ascending in Horsham, and Edward Elgar, another renowned Sussex resident.
Presented by the South Downs Poetry Festival in association with MADhurst.
