LEH Alumnae Musical Stars Shine Bright

Sisters Emma Lisney (violin) and Joy Lisney (cello), who both attended LEH, are establishing themselves as "ones to watch" on the young British classical music scene.
This autumn (from 11th November to 13th December) the pair, who have already received much acclaim for their performances, both as soloists and in ensemble join their father, concert pianist James Lisney.  The Lisney Trio are teaming up to perform in concerts in London, Cambridge and Cheltenham where they will perform Olivier Messiaen's monumental and profound Quartet for the End of Time (joined by clarinetist Michael Whight) and piano trios by Beethoven.

In addition, Emma Lisney performs Busoni's Violin Sonata at St John's Smith square (with Karl Lutchmayer, piano) as part of a special series of concerts, kicking off on 30th November, entitled Busoni: The Romantic Modernist. 

The series culminates in a performance of Busoni's mighty, rarely performed Piano Concerto where pianist Karl Lutchmayer is joined by Seraphin Chamber Orchestra, founded by Emma and Joy Lisney in Cambridge in 2017, and conducted by Joy Lisney.

Full details of all these concerts can be found on Joy Lisney's website.
