Chamber Music in Little Venice would like to invite you to join us for our 2014-2015 season finale. This year we are delighted to present Wissam Boustany, one of the greatest flautists in the world, alongside the distinguished cellist Mats Lidström. They will join our very own Little Venice Ensemble, led by LPO violinist Ilyoung Chae, in a programme of music perfect for a summer’s evening, to include beautiful and virtuosic works from the baroque to the present day.

What the critics say:
“Wissam Boustany plays the flute like a singer uses his voice. The expression radiates outwards from within, leaving the audience hypnotised by the sheer charisma and energy of his playing.”
Arts Focus, Scotland

“Mats Lidström is not just a wonderful cellist, he has a searching and curious mind that informs his music-making. The care and generosity of his personality come through clearly to the listener.”
Yo-Yo Ma
