Australian virtuoso-violinist Richard Tognetti, acclaimed for his revelatory artistry and scintillating concert programmes, returns following the outstanding success of his debut last season with the AAM. In a five-star review, The Guardian praised the “vibrantly physical dynamic” of Tognetti’s playing and the intensity of his relationship with the AAM.

Expect musical sparks to fly again in this season’s collaboration, when Tognetti is joined by oud-virtuoso Joseph Tawadros for a programme which conjures up the vibrant colour of 18th century Venice’s musical marketplace, a place where folk melodies and bawdy carnival ballads intermingled with motets and court concerti, echoing along the waterways and down the narrow alleys of “La Serenissima”.

TICKETS: £14–£27 (£3 for AAMplify members). Available at www.cornex.co.uk or call 01223 357851
