The Juritz-Briggs Violin and Piano Duo

19 September 2019

Tindall Recital Hall, Sherborne School, Abbey Road, Sherborne, DORSET, DT9 3AP

Exciting Violin and Piano Duo to visit Sherborne - Juritz Briggs Duo: JURITZ BRIGGS DUO
 
Virtuoso violinist David Juritz and renowned British concert pianist, Sarah Beth Briggs will visit Sherborne School on Thursday 19th September to work with students in a masterclass and give a recital in the Tindall Recital Series at 7.30pm. Both David and Sarah are highly acclaimed recording artists and sought after performers nationally and internationally. David is also well known in Dorset as the Artistic Director of the Burton Bradstock Festival.
 
David and Sarah first collaborated in the early 1990s and were initially brought together musically by a deep commitment to the music of Mozart. David was a longstanding leader of the famed London Mozart Players and is a consummate interpreter of Mozart’s chamber music and Sarah jointly won the International Mozart Competition in Salzburg and has since been highly praised for her interpretations of Mozart in performance and recordings.
 
In 2018 they came together in the Briggs Piano Trio (with ‘cellist Kenneth Woods) to record the music of another composer in which they have a shared interest – Hans Gál, alongside Shostakovich. Their trio recording was awarded a Gramophone Editor’s Choice in October 2018 and MusicWeb International Recording of the Month in November 2018.
 
From 2019, in addition to the Trio, David and Sarah have been working together as a violin and piano duo, covering repertoire from classical to contemporary, but giving special focus to the sonatas of Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms and continuing to raise the profile of Austrian-British composer Hans Gál.
