The Cost of Making Music

In the midst of a season featuring a number of orchestral concerts, the Cathedral tonight hosted a concert featuring just two musicians: acclaimed cellist Jamie Walton and concert pianist Daniel Grimwood.

The pair, who frequently work together, gave a stunning performance of works by Chopin and Rachmaninov. Something of a talking point has been the cost of the cello - apparently it is worth an amazing £890,000! It is surely a relief now that it is off the Cathedral premises, but hopefully Jamie and Daniel will return to give further performances here in the future.
