  2. Sonata for cello and piano in G minor Op 19 - Sergey Rachmaninov

Join acclaimed cellist Pavlos Carvalho and Pro Corda Artistic Director and pianist Andrew Quartermain as they take the stage from Leiston. The evening begins with Debussy's deeply moving Sonata for cello and piano, and is complete with Rachmaninov's triumphant Sonata in G minor.

Pavlos Carvalho started his musical studies with his father Santiago and then Stephen Popov. After gaining a BA in Ancient History he went to the Royal College of Music (RCM) to study with Steven Doane and, later, Jerome Pernoo. There, supported by a scholarship from the RCM and the Countess of Munster Trust, he graduated with distinction in solo and chamber music performance. He continued at the RCM as a Junior Fellow and assistant teacher of cello to Jerome Pernoo.

As a cellist Pavlos appears regularly as a soloist and chamber musician in the UK and abroad with a wide-ranging repertoire from baroque through to twentieth century music. He makes regular appearances at the Brighton festival where he annually performs the six cello suites by Bach and has performed all the major cello concertos with orchestras around the country. He has won numerous prizes, including the Koblenz Chamber Music competition in Germany, the International Taneev competition in Russia, the Tunnell Trust in Scotland and the Kirckman Award in London – with Trio Belle Epoque.

He also performed with the LPO Chamber Ensemble with whom he held a residency at Cambridge University giving concerts and masterclasses there. He has also recently recorded for BBC radio.

Pavlos has appeared in venues such as the Purcell Room, Cadogan Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall in London, St. David's Hall and the Millenium centre in Cardiff, and the Teatro dal Verme, Milan. Pavlos has also taken part in many master classes, including a BBC televised class given by Lynn Harrell and the Manchester Cello Festival with Janos Starker. As an adjudicator he has taken part in festivals all over the country including the National Chamber Music Festival for Pro Corda.

A large part of Pavlos’s musical life is dedicated to outreach work and he has been a member of the Live Music Now scheme.
