We are pleased to announce details of a free pop up concert during this 2015 Festival.

The pop up concert will take place in the Kino Cinema in Rye, on Wednesday, June 24th, 5:45pm.

The concert will be given by Michael Petrov, who is a young professional cellist appearing during the Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival. Michael is a member of Trio Isimsiz, who this year will be the young professional ensemble in residence at the Festival. A short biography is below.

At the pop up concert, Michael will be playing some movements of solo Bach and Dutilleux’s Trois Strophes sur le nom de Sacher (1976-1982) for solo cello. The concert should last about 20 to 30 minutes.

Including new and young artists in its programme is a key element of the Festival. This year’s ensemble is made up of violinist Pablo Hernán Benedí, cellist Michael Petrov and pianist Erdem Misirlioglu, who together form Trio Isimsiz. In addition to their performances during the Festival, the trio will participate in our education concert on Friday 26th June.
