Wed 14 March • Martin James Bartlett

Martin James Bartlett wowed us with this superb talent in 2016 at the Corn Exchange. He returns by popular demand this spring with a new programme including works by Bach, Beethoven, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev. Having won BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014, Bartlett has gone on to perform with major orchestras in the UK and Europe and in 2017 was a finalist at the prestigious Van Cliburn Competition in the USA.

The concert will open with a short performance by Hannah McFarlane, a tremendously talented young cellist from Dorchester.
