Hailed by The Times as ‘One of the most exciting cellists to have emerged for a decade’, Andrei Ionita is recognised for his gripping and deeply felt performances. Fauré’s gift for melodic writing is explored in a French inspired first half, while Beethoven’s intimate Cello Sonata, considered one of his most original works promises to take listeners far away from their seats.
