For the third year we are delighted 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 music. This year we have two sensational young soloists play two of the best loved concertos of all time with festival favourites Bath Philharmonia.

Coco Tomita, a pupil of the Menuhin School, blew audiences away with her performances at BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2020. Alexandra Dariescu dazzles audience and critics worldwide with her effortless musicality and captivating stage presence.

In partnership with Jason Thornton and Bath Philharmonia a sparkling evening awaits.

The Steinway concert piano chosen and hired by the Bath Festival for this performance is supplied and maintained by Steinway & Sons, London.
