Award-winning violinist Sarah Sew is set to wow audiences at Upton House and Gardens with a very special performance on Friday, July 4.

The highly regarded musician will perform a selection of solo violin works including pieces by Bach, Prokofiev and others in Upton’s Picture Room as part of the National Trust property’s Summer of Music.

Sarah studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Maurice Hasson and Howard Davis and at the Liszt School of Music Weimar in Germany with Friedemann Eichhorn.

She plays a violin by the celebrated Italian maker Gennaro Gagliano, made in Naples in about 1760.

Sarah is a winner of the Maisie Lewis Young Artists’ Fund Award from the Worshipful Company of Musicians, which supported her recital debut at Wigmore Hall in 2011.

Sarah served as Concert Master of the European Union Youth Orchestra from 2010-2012 under its music director Vladimir Ashkenazy and numerous guest conductors, leading the orchestra on worldwide tours to festivals and concert halls.

The concert programme, Reflections in Time, contains Bach’s 6 Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin which are widely considered as the foundation on which modern violin playing stands.
