KOSMOS ENSEMBLE 

  • HARRIET MACKENZIE  –  Violin
  • MEG HAMILTON  –  Viola
  • MILOS MILIVOJEVIC  –  Accordion

After Richard Morrison, the chief music critic of The Times had heard them, he wrote that they performed “with telepathic rapport, dazzling virtuosity, serious scholarship, intellectual curiosity and impeccable musicianship.   I defy you not to be mesmerised.”

Saturday 13th October 2018

  • JONATHAN RADFORD  –  Saxophone
  • KAOLI ONO  –  Piano

A combination of instruments not previously featured in Curry Rivel Music’s 40 year history but played by artistes from London and Paris where each has attracted national acclaim.   Their appearance is supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust by which Jonathan was granted a star award.   The Trust supports only the very best.
