Lithuanian cellist, composer and inter-disciplinary artist Anton Lukoszevieze is one of the most diverse performers of his generation. Anton has given many performances at international festivals throughout Europe and the USA. He has also performed concerti with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra the Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra, as well as performances with contemporary vocal ensemble Exaudi and King’s College Choir, Cambridge. In 2009 he was awarded the ‘Millennium Star’ medal, for services to Lithuanian culture, by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania. In 2012 he was awarded a Royal Philharmonic Society Award for outstanding contribution to chamber music. He is the founder and Director of Apartment House, who have made recent appearances at the Wigmore Hall, London.

Continuing with our Baroque theme, the Italian composer Joseph Dall’Abaco (1710-1805) was a virtuoso cellist whose life primarily intersected with the Classical era but whose music was mostly in the Baroque style. His sonatas and caprices conjured a range of moods, but the two works we hear are in a rather melancholy vein, hence the overall title of the concert. Almost without exception, the other pieces use stylistic or formal elements of the Baroque in their work. Indeed, Bailie’s Trains has a note in the score “It’s Bach!”.

The programme will also include a performance of a winning work in the Berwick New Music International Composition Competition.
