Daniel Pioro and Katherine Tinker

Fri 4 June, 3pm & 7pm

Part of Summer at Snape

An exciting and multi-faceted artist, violinist Daniel Pioro plays as a soloist with several of the UK’s leading orchestras and is a compelling advocate for contemporary and experimental music. Here he presents a recital combining pieces both old and new, joined by pianist Katherine Tinker.

Together they perform an attractive intriguing mix of music, alternating between short movements from pieces by Bach and Nico Muhly, and playing two contemplative but contrasting pieces – the original violin and piano version of Vaughan Williams’ much-loved The Lark Ascending and Linda Catlin Smith’s imagining of ‘two entities travelling the same path, occasionally casting shadows’. The event opens with a solo violin piece based on a performance by Kurt Cobain by Cassandra Miller, who would have been an Artist in Residence at last year’s Aldeburgh Festival.
