The London Cello Society is thrilled and honoured to present Thomas and Patrick Demenga in an afternoon of classes followed by a concert. For those of us who remember their captivating performances at the Manchester International Cello Festival, this event is not to be missed. Their imaginative programming always includes some old favourites and amusing surprises, and on this occasion the programme will consist of a blend of solo and duo works.
