Paul, who is guest leader of the Hallé Orchestra and previous leader of the Northern Sinfonia and English Chamber Orchestra, boasts an extensive musical career around the world, including presenting Masterclasses on Beethoven & Brahms Sonatas.

James, whose credits include a residency at Carnegie Recital Hall New York, an extensive Beethoven project and “Schubertreise” – a series of concerts held on the London Southbank, enjoys a rich musical life, moving seamlessly from concerto and recital soloist to chamber musician, song accompanist and pianist director.

Together they have recorded Beethoven’s complete violin and piano music to critical acclaim.

The Concert, which will include Beethoven’s much loved “Spring sonata” and the theme from Schindler’s list by John Williams will be held on Sunday 13th November from 6pm. The evening, which includes a Champagne Reception with finger food will take place at the historic 18th century country house Gaddesden Place, close to Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted.

Stately home Gaddesden Place has been the backdrop for many Film and TV Broadcasts including Sense and Sensibility, Spooks, Hustle, and Little Britain. With the house being privately owned and not open to the public, guests attending the concert will get a unique opportunity to go inside the house and have a rare look at a piece of fascinating local history.

Trevor Beale, one of the event organisers said “We are extremely excited to be holding this prestigious concert to raise funds for our church, and honoured to be able to use Gaddesden Place as the backdrop for the event. It looks to be a fantastic evening, and we would very much encourage people to come along” he added.
Revd John Russell, the Vicar of St John the Baptist Church, Great Gaddesden said “A small historic countryside church like ours requires constant upkeep, and so events organised by members of the church are vital in order to help preserve the church and its heritage for the people of our community and future generations to enjoy”.
