Evening Concert

Stokes (flute) & Lee (piano)


It’s a long time since we have had a flute recital and this promises to be thrilling, with a programme ranging from Fauré's Fantaisie to C.P.E. Bach  ‘Hamburg’ Sonata and taking in a virtuoso Bizet’s ‘Carmen’ the French Romantic School along the way.  Anna Stokes has worked with numerous orchestras including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, BBC Concert Orchestra, and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
Her 2014 CD entitled 'Luminance - Solo & Duo Works for flute and piano', released under Champs Hill Records, was chosen as 'Classic FM CD of the Week' and David Mellor's Album of the Week (5 Star Review) in the 'Mail on Sunday'.

Wai-Yin Lee was born in Hong Kong, and obtained her undergraduate degree in Piano from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA). In 2000, she was awarded a two-year full scholarship from the Royal College of Music in London to do a postgraduate study in piano performance, she then went on to study a Masters degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Following this Wai-Yin pursued her studies as a repetiteur on a City Educational Scholarship. She then was awarded a fellowship at the GSMD in 2007, and in the same year was also invited to join the prestigious National
Opera Studio as a part-time repetiteur trainee. She is now currently working at the Royal College of Music as a repetiteur for the Opera School, and also as an official accompanist for the RCM entrance exams.

Thomas Bowes, violin

plays solo Bach Partitas & Sonatas


Thomas_Bowes 1

This will be a wonderful and unmissable event. TRMS is fortunate and proud to have secured time with such a talented musician.

Thomas Bowes is widely recognised as one of the UK’s most versatile and accomplished violinists – as a soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster and artistic director.   

His concerto work in the UK, Germany and the USA has included performances of the Elgar, Walton, Britten and Szymanowski concertos.  At the invitation of the late Lady Walton, Tom spent three weeks on Ischia studying the history and score of the Walton concerto. His subsequent critically acclaimed recording of the work (along with the Barber concerto) for Signum Classics reveals a special connection to Walton’s music. Thomas_Bowes

Tom undertook an extensive ‘Bach Pilgrimage’ at the end of the 2012/13 season, giving fifty concerts of the unaccompanied Sonatas and Partitas of JS Bach in churches across mainland Britain and raising over £20,000 for various charities.  He is currently in the process of recording the works for release in 2016 and also planning a second ‘Pilgrimage’ in Europe.  

Tom’s partnership with his wife, the composer and pianist Eleanor Alberga, has played a significant role throughout his career. As the duo “Double Exposure” they toured extensively across the USA, made a ground-breaking trip to China in 1997 and gave regular performances and broadcasts in the UK.  The Duo established a reputation for adventurous programming and regularly performed commissions and world premieres of American and British composers. 

As an enthusiastic champion of contemporary music, Tom gave the world premiere of Eleanor Alberga’s Violin Concerto with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Joseph Swensen. A second Alberga concerto is in the midst of composition and a premiere is planned for the 2017/18 season. 

Chamber music has been a major part of Tom’s artistic life – he was the founding leader of the Maggini Quartet – and since 2003 he has been the Artistic Director of the Langvad Chamber Music Jamboree in northern Denmark.  More recently, with Eleanor Alberga, he founded the music festival Arcadia in north Herefordshire, England.  Central to the ethos of both festivals is to bring fresh, authentic and vibrant music making to local communities and their audiences.

Equally at home in the commercial recording studio, Tom is in great demand as soloist and concertmaster and works closely with many of today’s most eminent film composers and amongst numerous film credits are such hit-movies as the Bond films “Spectre” and “Skyfall”, The Hunger Games trilogy, “The King’s Speech” and “The Da Vinci Code”. Tom is privileged to own and play a violin by one of the great Cremonese makers - a splendid 1659 Nicolo Amati.
