Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Isata Kanneh-Mason: Muse CD

Classical music’s star duo Sheku & Isata Sheku Kanneh-Mason have performed together all over the world. Now they present an impassioned programme of Barber & Rachmaninov, including each composer’s Cello Sonata and a selection of beautiful songs transcribed for cello. The siblings have performed the sonatas many times and had prepared this specific programme for a tour when the pandemic hit. Instead, they turned to the recording studio to share their music.
