One of the most enterprising and imaginative cellists on today's music scene, Adrian Brendel's typically eclectic lunchtime programme brings together two - highly-contrasted - masterworks of the repertoire, by Debussy and Chopin, and places them alongside the very different music of Sir Harrson Birtwistle: part of a work initially conceived as a 75th birthday present for Adrian Brendel's father, Alfred.
Serbian Aleksandar Madžar, another musician of great individuality, is the pianist.
