American-born, London-based pianist Anyssa Neumann has been praised for the “clarity, charm, and equipoise” of her performances, which span solo and collaborative repertoire from the Baroque to the 21st century. Recent pre-lockdown highlights include concerts in Italy, Spain, Sweden, the UK, Canada, and the Pacific Northwest; a Don Quixote-themed recital project with British bass-baritone Timothy Dickinson; and a tour of California and New Mexico with American soprano Rena Harms. She holds degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, University of Oxford, and King’s College London, and studied with Fabio Bidini in Berlin and Paul Stewart in Montreal.

Anyssa will play selections from Bach's Goldberg Variations.

Sebastian Comberti was born in London and studied in Italy with Amedeo Baldovino and later with Derek Simpson and Sidney Griller at the Royal Academy of Music. He was a founder member of the Bochmann Quartet until 1983 when he became principal cello with the London Mozart Players, a position he continues to hold. 

A keen interest in historically informed performance has resulted in participation with a great many of London’s period instrument groups, appearing as principal cello and soloist with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Hanover Band. 

As a member of several  chamber groups, including Trio Goya and Divertimenti Ensemble he has recorded for CRD, EMI, Harmonia Mundi, Hyperion, Meridian, Phoenix and  RCA and CPO.  

In April 2001 Sebastian founded the Cd label Cello Classics, devoted to recordings of rare repertoire and historical recordings, himself releasing several CDs of sonatas by Boccherini, Stephen Paxton, early 19th Century works with fortepiano, and concertos by Haydn and Zumsteeg with  the OAE.

Sebastian's programme will include works by J.S and PDQ Bach, Cassadò  and Fauré.
