*Please note that pianist Tom Poster will now be accompanying Steven Isserlis

One of our finest solo instrumentalists, cellist Steven Isserlis, together with pianist Tom Poster, returns to Petworth following the rapturous response to his 2015 appearance. Together they present an imaginative and thoroughly attractive programme entitled Composers and their Muses: paired works by male composers and the female composers with whom they had close relationships.
