Accompanied by Isata Kanneh-Mason (piano)
Cassado: Suite for solo cello
Beethoven: Sonata Op 5 no 2 in G minor
Shostakovich: Sonata op 40 in D minor
Sheku’s sister Isata joins him for this special recital, in which he combines the cellist-composer Cassadó’s colourful solo suite with Beethoven’s darkly tempestuous second sonata, ending with Shostakovich’s epic masterpiece from 1934.
