We are delighted once again to be presenting the annual concert
dedicated to the memory of Brian and Margaret Roper; a concert that
encourages future generations to develop their love of classical

Youth is at the heart of this wonderful evening’s music making with
two BBC Young Musician finalists. Isata Kanneh-Mason gives her second
performance at The Bath Festival with Clara Schumann’s piano
concerto, and Proms star Jess Gillam, who took the Last Night of the
Proms by storm, performs a Saxophone Concerto by John Williams,
composer of Star Wars and Harry Potter. A fizzing evening of music is
brought to a close by Ravel’s blazing Bolero.

virtuosity’ THE ARTS DESK
