Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason are two prodigiously talented siblings from an unparalleled family of musicians. In addition to enjoying endless critical acclaim, these exemplary young artists have become massively popular among an unusually large swath of audiences, speaking volumes not only of their obvious technical abilities, but also their great musicality. Following a memorable Boston debut performance in 2019, the pair now returns to our city with even greater demand. Join us to see two British sensations well on their way to becoming household names, as we close out our 2021/22 concert season on a high note with an evening of timeless cello and piano sonatas.
