Matthew Sharp
& Viv McLean

Wednesday 30 January 2019 at 7.30PM
Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall

Matthew Sharp cello, baritone

Viv McLean piano

Robert Schumann     Dichterliebe

Clara Schumann     Romances op. 22

Brahms     Sonata for cello and piano in F op. 99

Matthew Sharp and Viv McLean explore the intense love, admiration, romance and despair at the core of one of the 19th century’s most fascinating and compelling relationships. Singer, cellist, actor and director – Matthew Sharp defies definition, being equally at home in all these roles.  He performs as singer in Schumann’s song cycle, written when the composer was separated from his beloved Clara, as cellist in an arrangement of Clara’s Romances for violin and piano and in Brahms’s passionate, late sonata.  Viv McLean, winner of the 2002 Maria Canals International Piano Competition and several young artists awards is an equal partner in this demanding programme.
