Richard Jenkinson and Benjamin Frith have been playing together for over
twenty years and have performed in many of the country’s most prestigious
venues. They both share something of an obsession for the work of Beethoven
with a combined experience of performing the majority of the great man’s oeuvre.
Following the success of last season’s Schubert Experience, this unique day
of discovery offers a rare opportunity to hear all of Beethoven’s cello and piano works with illuminating insight by the distinguished musicologist and Viennese Classical period specialist Richard Wigmore.
