Chris Thomas Memorial Concert 1    22nd Oct 2018 at The Bear Club Map

Luton is very proud to boast Timothy Ridout as one of its own! He is now established as the viola player of his generation and is already performing all over the world. It’s a thrill to hear him again in his home town and what better way to begin our series of four concerts honouring the memory of Chris Thomas, a man who over 40 years did so much to encourage the very best young musicians in the country. Joined by emerging pianist Jâms Coleman this will be playing of the very finest quality.

‘…a gorgeous tone, a thoughtful approach and an infectious sense of impetuosity…’ Gramophone
