a violin & piano recital on Saturday 2 March 2019 at 7:30 pm

Callum Smart and Richard Uttley

Bad weather with heavy snow forced to cancel this wonderful duo’s recital last year, but we are very fortunate to bring them back! This is a third-time return to Breinton by young virtuoso Callum Smart, who reached the final stage of the BBC Young Musicians of the Year competition 2010 at the age of 13. Also a prize winner of the the Yehudi Menuhin Competition, the highest level competition for young violinists in the world, Callum has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Orpheus Sinfonia. Richard is a sought-after soloist, chamber musician and recording artist, who is regularly broadcast on BBC Radio 3. You can certainly keep your expectations high!

Callum Smart attracted wide public attention at the age of thirteen having won the strings category of the 2010 BBC Young Musicians Competition performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Vasily Petrenko. In the same year he went on to become the top European prize-winner at the Menuhin Competition and now enjoys critical acclaim for his lyrical and accomplished interpretations.

Noted for the integrity and breadth of his musicianship as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist, Richard Uttley has been recognised for his ‘musical intelligence and pristine facility’ (International Record Review), ‘amazing decisiveness’, and tumultuous performance’ (Daily Telegraph). His playing is frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has featured on BBC Two, BBC Four and Sky Arts. Richard won the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2006 and was represented by Young Classical Artists Trust 2011-17.
