Sarah-Jane Bradley is one of Britain’s foremost viola players. She was a prize-winner at the Lionel Tertis Viola Competition in 1994 and soon afterwards made her debut at the Wigmore Hall.
She has since played around the world with leading orchestras and conductors, given several premieres, made many recordings and had a number of new works specially written for her. She performs regularly with John Lenehan who is a distinguished solo pianist and accompanist.
Their programme includes sonatas by Brahms and Handel, and the richly romantic Rachmaninov sonata, originally written for the cello.
