“Emma is passionate about bringing music to healthcare settings working currently for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and bringing live music to children’s hospices.

“Cordelia is recognised for the inner strength, poetry and conviction of her playing and her deep and mature interpretations.

“Emma and Cordelia have been performing together for many years and particularly enjoy creating exciting programmes that combine Emma’s love of 20th Century British music with that of Cordelia’s expertise on late classical and early romantic eras.”
