Concert: SONO Ensemble – 4/5
- Sat 19 Dec 2020
- 7:00 pm
Join the SONO ensemble for a concert broadcast live from the International Anthony Burgess Foundation on 19 December 2020, from 7pm until 8pm GMT.
The SONO ensemble was formed in Manchester, UK by a couple of Lithuanian musicians, cellist Gunda Baranauskaitė and pianist Ugnius Pauliukonis.
Their main idea was to create a shape-shifting ensemble of like-minded musicians with a freedom to perform not only the chamber pieces we are all familiar with, but also dive into the modern day repertoire and explore the gems of contemporary music.
In every concert the audience will be presented with a contrasting programme consisting of at least one well-known piece side by side with a less familiar nonetheless exciting repertoire.
The ensemble’s wish is to provide the listener a chance to approach new repertoire with an ease and have an opportunity to grow fond of it while still appreciating the good-old classics.
