Sarah Williamson is renowned as a virtuoso clarinettist whose talent has been recognised by concert-goers and critics alike. BBC Music Magazine wrote: ‘A tenacious player like Williamson doesn't need gimmicks – her sonorous timbre and natural musicality speak for themselves.' The Independent hailed her as a ‘superb player'; and The Telegraph praised Sarah's ‘blend of languor and exuberance.' She achieved international fame in 2002 following her success in the BBC Young Musician Competition and Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians. As a soloist, Sarah has performed at many of the world's major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, The Wigmore Hall, The South Bank Centre, The Berlin Concerthaus, The Tonhalle Zurich, The Theatre des Champs-Elysèes Paris, The Suntory Hall and NHK Hall, Japan.
Sam Haywood has performed in many of the world's major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Philharmonie de Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus and the Wigmore Hall. He embraces a wide spectrum of the piano repertoire and is equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician or working with singers. He has toured extensively as a duo with American violinist Joshua Bell and also with cellist Steven Isserlis. Passionate about early instruments, Haywood recorded a Chopin album on the composer's own Pleyel piano, part of the Cobbe Collection, to celebrate his bicentenary in 2010. Other recordings include Stanford's Preludes and the piano works of Julius Isserlis for Hyperion Records. For Sony he has recorded a selection of works by the child prodigy Alma Deutscher and he also features on Joshua Bell's ‘Musical Gifts' album. This season he will be performing concerti, solo recitals and chamber music in UK, South America, Germany, Greece and Korea. Recording projects will include albums for Warner Classics and Deux-Elles, as well as a live broadcast for BBC Radio.
