Sheku Kanneh-Mason, just 23 years old, is one of the biggest rising stars of our time. So are the other members of the Kanneh-Mason family, all seven siblings. In 2016, Sheku won the BBC Young Musician of the Year award, rocketing his career. When he performed on Harry and Megan’s wedding, he was right away discovered by two billion people across the globe.

J.S. Bach Suite No. 2 in D minor | Simcock Prayer for the Senses | Britten Suite No. 1 | Brouwer Sonata No. 2 | Finnis five preludes for solo cello | Cassado suite for solo cello
