Programme Gabriel Fauré: Romance Maurice Ravel: Violin Sonata No. 2 Vaughn Williams: The Lark Ascending Edward Elgar: Violin Sonata Maurice Ravel: Tzigane
Amy and Katy are two of the latest generation of passionate young musicians who are establishing themselves as concert favourites. This occasion will be an exciting opportunity to see two wonderful artists performing together. Amy   Butler   gained   a   first-class   Master's   degree   from   the   University   of   Oxford.   She   duets   regularly   with   violinist   Boglárka György,   also   flautist   Chris   Hill   and   cellist   Katharine   Ley.   Amy   has   performed   extensively   across   the   UK,   with   recent highlights   including   Stratford-upon-Avon   Music   Society,   North   Westmorland Arts,   Warwick Arts   Centre,   Salisbury   Chamber Music,   Melrose   Music   Society,   Sprotbrough   Music   Society,   the   Eric   Coates   Society   and   the   Guild   of   Musicians   and Singers (London). An   exceptional   violinist,   Katy   is   already   much   in   demand   as   a   solo   artist. After   performing   as   soloist   with   the   New   English Concert   Orchestra   at   the   Battle   Proms,   she   was   the   first   soloist   to   be   invited   back   for   a   second   year   running,   and   again   as their   favourite   soloist   for   their   20   year   anniversary   concert.   Katy   plays   on   a   fine   18th   century   English   violin   made   by Nathaniel Cross, and will be using “Elgar’s bow” that has kindly been lent to her.
