10 May - Lynden Cranham

Funtington Music Group will learn about the life and times of 19th-century cellist Robert Lindley in the University of Chichester Chapel on Wednesday, May 10 at 7.30pm.

The exploration in words and music comes from Lynden Cranham and friends. Virtuoso cellist Lynden is joined by cellist Thomas Parker, Emma Parker on violin and pianist Simon Lane. Lynden will talk about Robert Lindley who had humble beginings in Rotherham but went on to become the most famous cellist of his day, playing before royalty and sharing concert platforms with such as Mendelssohn, Paganini and Liszt. The evening of words and music will illustrate Lindley’s extraordinary life in Regency and Victorian London.

All are welcome for a ticket price at the door of £15. Visitors may join as members at any time during the year; the subscription for this event and the remaining four events in 2017 is £45, a saving of £15 on ticket prices.

She made many commercial recordings and, with the London-based Burnell Piano Trio, toured and broadcast in Britain and Europe. Moving to the US she taught at Cornell University, and toured the US and New Zealand with the Accordo Perfetto Piano Quartet.
