Leslie Howard has balanced his prodigious recording career with an international concert itinerary which has seen him performing regularly throughout the world for more than half a century, always with a repertoire that seeks to extend the audience’s experience and to challenge accepted hierarchies of received wisdom. He has appeared regularly with the world’s finest orchestras and has also pursued a distinguished career as a chamber musician, partnering many of the greatest solo musicians and ensembles of our time. He recently released one further CD of hitherto unrecorded pieces by Liszt, finally bringing the total to 100, and so extending the already unequalled accomplishment of the largest solo artist recording project in the history of classical music. Tonight, he is by joined London Symphony Orchestra violinist, Naoko Keatley; Bridget O’Donnell, violin (English Chamber Orchestra); violist Morgan Goff (Philharmonia); and Tim Walden, Principal Cello with the Philharmonia in the first of many concerts exploring the piano quintet repertory.
