Richard Jenkinson is very well known to local audiences in many capacities - especially as principal cello of the CBSO, as a member of the Dante Quartet and as Music Director of the Orchestra of St John. Benjamin Frith has appeared locally as a concerto soloist and as a member of the Gould Piano Trio. Their duo partnership dates back to 1996 and their first CD as a duo, “The Moon Sails Out”, released in 2015, includes the three Ian Venables pieces they will be playing for us.
