Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, Tatiana Eva-Marie is unable to make the trip to Cardiff. We wish her well and she sends her best wishes for a fantastic and enjoyable concert for all.

However Adrien Chevalier is currently on his way to Cardiff, and we are delighted to still be joined by Matheus Prado on bass for what promises to be a fantastic string trio night! We will make sure that the show is going to be one to remember!
