Three ensembles and a soloist descend on Taunton for an exciting opportunity to hear some of the highly talented musicians in the early stages of their career. ‘Rising stars’ is perhaps a misnomer is some cases: they have already risen (or risen further since we engaged them) and are already in demand by concert halls and festivals worldwide.

Violinist Lea Hausmann, cellist Samuel Shepherd and pianist Mengjie Han founded Amatis Piano Trio in 2014. Since winning the International Parkhouse Award at Wigmore Hall in 2015, they have been named Dutch Classical Talent 2016, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists 2017/18 and European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Stars 2018/19. The trio perform extensive in major halls across Europe including debuts in Vienna Konzerthaus, Palau de la Musica, Barcelona and tours in the US and India this season.

A pre-concert talk by writer and broadcaster Stephen Johnson is included in the ticket price – this begins at 10.30am, with the concert proper at 11am.
