This Friday, in a special episode of In Tune broadcast live from Stratford-upon-Avon in front of a studio audience, Sean Rafferty launches Radio 3’s Shakespeare Anniversary weekend: Sounds of Shakespeare. The event, which can also be heard on BBC Radio 3, opens with the world premiere performance of Roxanna Panufnik’s Love Sought, for which Rachel Roberts (viola) is joined by mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge and pianist James Baillieu.
Rachel Roberts has been invited to take part in one of Japan’s most prestigious Chamber Music Festivals in Toyko’s superb Toppan Hall, renowned the world over for its outstanding acoustics.
She joins a starry roster of internationally acclaimed musicians including Christian Tetzlaff (violin), Takumi Kubota (violin), Mariko Hara (viola), Tanja Tetzlaff (cello), Marie-Elisabeth Hecker (cello) and Lars Vogt (piano)
Rachel Roberts takes part in three contrasting concerts over Valentines weekend at the RWCMD as part of their far-reaching Beethoven Chamber Music Festival 10-14 February 2016. The Festival invites listeners to discover for themselves just how this uniquely great man, born just prior to social reform and upheaval, was able to embrace the universal, creating a totally new emotional range in which successive composers could communicate.
