The brilliant British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year Award, makes his Bay Area debut in a recital accompanied by his sister, the equally celebrated pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason. The young cellist drew raves performing at the 2018 royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Also in 2018, Decca released his acclaimed debut album, Inspiration, which included Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1, and Kanneh-Mason’s arrangement of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry.”
