Sara Trickey is a solo violinist and chamber musician. After reading classics at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, she has played with acclaimed orchestras, trios and quartets, coming second in the Cremona International Quartet competition and winning the Royal Overseas League competition. The Evening Standard lauded her latest CD, a Schubert recital with Daniel Tong a ‘melting lyricism tinged with melancholy… Irresistible!’ Reviewing the same CD, the BBC Music Magazine wrote ‘Perhaps the first thing that strikes one of the hearing of this release is the quality of the pianism. Not its dazzling virtuosity…. but the sheer full-blooded refinement of the playing.’ 

A Cornish solo pianist and chamber musician who has performed in leading British venues and festivals as well as around Europe, Daniel Tong can often be heard on BBC Radio and has curated both an Elgar and Dvorak festival at King’s Place, London. He founded ‘Music Discovery Live’ and London Bridge Ensemble and collaborates with some of the UK’s most exciting musicians.
