This recital features horn player Ben Goldscheider who came to public attention when he made the final of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year aged 18. He will be accompanied by pianist and composer Huw Watkins whose work is also featured in this programme.

This event is part of our 'endangered instruments' series which this year focuses on the French Horn.

“I think there is a lot of scope for taking the horn to the general public. I think it’s a wonderful instrument”
- Ben Goldscheider
