We invite you to celebrate the beginning of the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness with an eclectic programme of music from two master musicians at the very top of their game.

The concert will feature many of Geoff Eales's genre-busting compositions, two world-premieres, as well as music by Bach, Debussy, Michael Nyman and others.

The inspirational Welsh pianist, composer and improviser Geoff Eales has enjoyed an incredibly varied career in music. At Cardiff University he studied composition under Professor Alun Hoddinott and piano with Martin Jones. He was awarded a PhD for his large-scale work An American Symphony and his setting of Dylan Thomas' poem In the beginning for tenor, horn and piano. He has also written a piano concerto, string quartet, brass quintet and A Sussex Rhapsody, the latter commissioned by the BBC.

As well as his love of classical music, Geoff is passionate about jazz and has 13 highly acclaimed jazz albums to his name. He has performed at many of the world's leading concert halls, festivals and jazz clubs including the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall and London's Ronnie Scott's Club, the Blue Note Clubs of Japan, New York's Birdland, The Jazz Bakery in Los Angeles and festivals in Belgrade, Zagreb, Edinburgh, Cork and Brecon.

Andy Findon is Europe's most recorded flautist and is one of the world's leading exponents of the ethnic flute. He studied at The Royal College of Music and is an ex-principal flautist of The National Youth Orchestra. He is the longest serving member of The Michael Nyman Band where he has been playing baritone saxophone and flutes for the last 37 years. He is also a member of the folk/rock band The Home Service, the medieval prog-rock band Gryphon and plays regularly with the major London symphony orchestras. He often collaborates with Geoff Eales, their celebrated album, "The Dancing Flute", substantially adding to the repertoire of the flute and piano pantheon.

Andy is a Pearl Flutes International Artist and the proud owner of the platinum flute built for Geoffrey Gilbert in 1950 by Charles Morley.
