Antony Brannick is joined by three hugely talented local musicians for his latest evening with friends.

They are Tamsin Curror (clarinet), Ben Lawrence (viola) and Ailie Kerrane (piano).

Featuring in this concert will be Mozart’s delightful ‘Kegelstatt trio’ - the ‘skittle-alley’ trio, so named as Mozart is reputed to have scribbled it down whilst at a skittle alley. Who says musicians can’t have fun?!

The programme will include music by Bruch, Poulenc and Peter Maxwell Davies.

Antony will play Beethoven’s C minor piano sonata no 5 - a ‘dry-run’ perhaps for his great ‘Pathetique’ piano sonata which followed a little later.

This informal concert will take place at the Central Methodist Church in Todmorden (Feb 27 at 7.30 pm).

As usual admission is free and refreshments will be provided.

A retiring collection will be taken.
