Few solo artists are as dynamic and creative with their art as Matthew Barley. Inspired by Benjamin Britten’s centenary, The tour of “The Sacred Cello” has no less than 100 performances for the enjoyment of those who love Britten’s music and to reach those who are new to his music. The programme which is built around the Third Cello Suite, features new music and much loved cello repertoire as companions, drawn together in a multi-media musical feast.
