Malvern Concert Club: Martin Roscoe and Jennifer Pike

20th January 2022 7:30 pm

Martin Roscoe piano

Jennifer Pike violin

Beethoven Sonatas for piano and violin
– No.6 in A, Op.30, No.1

It was a double disappointment for Club members when, in January 2020 – Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year – Tasmin Little OBE was prevented by a hand injury from completing our cycle of his violin and piano sonatas. Then Covid-19 forced her last, rearranged concert in Malvern to be cancelled. Tasmin has now, of course, retired from playing. However, we are delighted that Martin Roscoe has invited Jennifer Pike, the distinguished British violinist, to join him for this third and final concert of the series.

With an extraordinary career spanning over four decades, Martin Roscoe is unarguably one of the UK’s best loved pianists. Renowned for his versatility at the keyboard, Martin is equally at home in concerto, recital and chamber performances. In an ever more distinguished career, his enduring popularity and the respect in which he is universally held are built on a deeply thoughtful musicianship allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.

Renowned for her unique artistry and compelling insight into music of all eras, Jennifer Pike is one of today’s most exciting instrumentalists. She first gained international recognition in 2002, when, aged 12, she became the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year. She made her debuts at the BBC Proms and the Wigmore Hall aged 15, and was a BBC New Generation Artist from 2008 – 2010. She is a patron of the Lord Mayor’s City Music Foundation, and in 2020 was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to classical music.

Both artists have extensive discographies. Together, they have recorded (for Chandos) French violin sonatas (“thoroughly idiomatic, glistening performances”), and works by Elgar and Vaughan Williams (“rare and well- known repertoire with a twist combine in an irresistible release”). The latter includes the original, piano, version of The Lark Ascending.
