PRISM Fenella Humphreys, violin

Monday, June 17, 2024 at 12:00 am

Winner of the 2023 BBC Music Magazine Premiere Recording Award, and the 2018 BBC Music Magazine Instrumental Award, Fenella Humphreys has attracted critical admiration and audience acclaim with the grace and intensity of her remarkable performances. She is one of the UK’s most established and versatile violinists, with her playing described in the press as ‘alluring’, ‘unforgettable’ and ‘a wonder’.

Prism focuses on unaccompanied violin works – from new works written by young British composers to iconic recent works by Caroline Shaw, Jessie Montgomery and George Walker, with Fenella’s new arrangement of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue BWV565 at its heart. Fenella plays on a G.B. Guadagnini violin kindly on loan from Jonathan Sparey.

Following the performance, Fenella Humphreys will be joined by multi-award-winning writer, historian, and public speaker, Dr Leah Broad, for a discussion and Q&A. Leah specialises in twentieth-century cultural history, especially women in the arts.
