Sutton House Music Society
Bringing classical music of the highest quality to Hackney audiences
at affordable prices in a friendly relaxed setting.
Two outstanding young musicians are returning to Sutton House for the Sunday 9 June 2013 summer concert at 7pm. Violinist Lana Trotovšek and pianist Yoko Misumi, who have also played the house’s concert hall as members of the Greenwich Trio, will perform works by Debussy, Brahms and Bartók.
Trotovšek studied under Ruggiero Ricci at Salzburg’s Mozarteum. This young Slovenian has performed at St John’s Smith Square in London, at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, at Vienna’s Konzerthaus and on other great European stages. She has premiered and recorded works for violin and orchestra that were specially written for her, as well as winning international competitions and prizes. Her performance with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev last September won enthusiastic reviews.
Misumi was born in Kyoto to a musical family. Her talent became evident at 14, when she won her first prize. Once she had completed high school, she left Japan for London to continue her music studies. In the Greenwich Trio she has recorded with Trotovšek (and Stjepan Hauser) and has been a soloist under James Judd and Barry Wordsworth, among other renowned conductors. She has played at Kyoto Concert Hall, the Concertgebouw, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Kings Place and the Wigmore Hall.
Of course, you do not have to travel to such venues: you can see these rising young stars in the comfortable, purpose-built music venue Wenlock Barn in Hackney’s 1530s-vintage National Trust gentleman’s house. But don’t be slow to book: the previous concert was a full house, and the summer concerts mark the end of the Sutton House Music Society season and tend to be well-attended.
