About the Event

Sheku Kanneh‐Mason's cello artistry has been described as phenomenal by the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The article praises his remarkable understanding of bow pressure and tension, as well as his astonishing knowledge and feeling for the right bow speed. Sheku's talent extends beyond classical music, captivating audiences with his natural and relaxed performance style. His album 'Elgar' even made history by reaching the top 10 on the UK Official Album Charts, a first for a cellist. The standing ovations at his concert were not only a result of his wonderful abilities, but also due to the equally fabulous talents of his sister, Isata Kanneh‐Mason, on the piano. Isata's playing complements and enhances the music, adding to the overall experience.

The Kanneh‐Mason parents did not push their seven children into music, but rather enjoyed introducing them to different instruments. They were surprised by the exceptional talent and strong will displayed by their 'Magnificent Seven.' While Isata and Sheku are the most well‐known members of their highly talented family, they are also possibly Britain's most musical siblings. The duo evening in Berlin, featuring Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Beethoven, Fauré, and Chopin sonatas, promises to be a showcase of their immense musical prowess. Prepare to be delighted and enthralled by their performances.
