Rough Magic | Matthew Sharp | The Quinn Yurt | 16:00 – 17:00 | £5

Matthew is internationally recognised as both a compelling classical artist and a fearless pioneer. His adventures in and through music and across disciplines are ‘unrivalled’ and ‘unprecedented’, balancing provenance and vision in a unique and potent way.

He studied cello with Boris Pergamenschikow in Cologne, voice with Ulla Blom in Stockholm and English at Trinity College, Cambridge. He was taken to Jacqueline du Pré when he was 12, Galina Vishnewskaya when he was 18 and studied chamber music with the Amadeus Quartet. He performs at major venues and festivals worldwide as solo cellist, baritone, actor and director.

This performance is totally devoted to you

Iconic and elemental tunes meld with major works written for Matthew to conjure a journey into the depths of human love and what it is to find a belonging through the power and grace of music. JS Bach, Jeff Buckley, John Tavener, Cole Porter and others will weave their rough magic and leave you spell-bound.
