Three ensembles and a soloist descend on Taunton for an exciting opportunity to hear some of the highly talented musicians in the early stages of their career. ‘Rising stars’ is perhaps a misnomer is some cases: they have already risen (or risen further since we engaged them) and are already in demand by concert halls and festivals worldwide.

Clare Hammond is a pianist of ‘amazing power and panache’ (Telegraph) and is recognised for the virtuosity and authority of her performances and for her ‘brilliantly imaginative concert programmes’ (BBC Music ‘Rising Star’). In 2016, she won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s ‘Young Artist Award’.

A pre-concert talk by writer and broadcaster Stephen Johnson is included in the ticket price – this begins at 10.30am, with the concert proper at 11.00am.
