Leon Bosch: Masterclass
- Sun 19 Feb 2017

“I know he can play anything to be found in the repertoire for solo Double Bass for he is a true virtuoso”
Sir Charles Groves
Leon Bosch was a prominent player in the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble, the Moscow Virtuosi and the Zukerman Chamber Players, and played engagements with the Lindsay, Belcea and Brodsky String Quartets.
Following a two-hour masterclass, Classical Evolution’s Heather Bird will cook a hearty feast suitable for carnivores and herbivores, along with homemade bread, and cheese. Leon wil then discuss his varied and interesting life in a relaxed conversation and Q & A. To end the day, Leon will give a recital including a transcribed sonata for horn by Beethoven and Ariosa by Bach, accompanied by Amy Thompson.
If you want to just come for lunch, chat and recital, or any part of the above that’s also fine. Here is the running order:
1pm Masterclass 1
2.30pm Masterclass 2
