Jamal Aliyev has performed widely in Europe and further afield as a concerto soloist and in cello recitals. He made his Proms debut in 2017, and has appeared on BBC Radio. Jamal is the recipient of a number of prizes and awards. Jâms Coleman enjoys a rich and varied musical life performing as a solo pianist, chamber musician, vocal accompanist and musical director.
Bridge’s Cello Sonata, a wartime work of 1913-17, is notable for its lyrical beauty.
From Jewish Life, composed by Ernest Bloch in 1924, explores the whole range of the cello, with a distinctive atmosphere deriving from Eastern European Ashkenazi modality. Brahms’ Sonata is one of the great late romantic works for cello, and we end with Chopin’s entertaining Polonaise.
