Hull Chamber Music welcomes BBC Music Magazine’s Instrumental Award winner (2018) violinist Fenella Humphreys, alongside international pianist Nicola Eimer. The programme highlights works from their new ‘absolutely exquisite’ (BBC Radio 3’s Record Review) album, So Many Stars. The title references Sibelius’ diaries as he was writing his Sonatina: “My childhood sky is full of stars — so many stars”.
…Humphreys’s utter absorption and delight shines forth at every turn… strong-toned, easy fluidity and immaculate technique…Charlotte Gardner, Gramophone Magazine
