Leila Josefowicz violin

John Novacek piano

Reviewers have written of the alchemy that unites Leila Josefowicz's duo partnership and John Novacek. The Arts Desk praised their last appearance at Wigmore Hall in 2015 for its 'huge panache and professional energy' and for their musicmaking's daring spontaneity.

They return with a programme of works hallmarked by dark introspection and powerful emotions, including arrangements of profoundly meditative orchestral pieces by Sibelius and Mahler, Kaija Saariaho's mystical Calices and two compelling 20th-century takes on the sonata.
