    Celebrity Recital: Jennifer Pike & James Baillieu

    1300-1400The Nave, Southwell Minster

    TICKETS AVAILABLE (click to book)

    We are proud to present two of today’s most admired musicians; their delightful programme will show their outstanding artistry. Renowned for her “dazzling interpretative flair and exemplary technique” (Classic FM), violinist Jennifer Pike performs recitals and concertos in the world’s most prestigious concert halls. Jennifer gained international recognition aged 12 as the youngest winner, at that time, of the BBC Young Musician competition and her subsequent career has included many more awards and consistently enthusiastic reviews. Pianist James Baillieu is “in a class of his own” (Daily Telegraph). He has been garlanded with awards, has accompanied a galaxy of international stars, and appears regularly in the leading concert halls here and aboard. In addition he finds time to take part in programmes internationally to support the development of emerging musicians. We are delighted that James is a regular visitor to Southwell.
