Emma Johnson’s career was launched when at the age of 17 she won BBC Young Musician of the Year. She is one of the few clarinettists to have established a busy career as a solo performer which has taken her to major European, American and Asian venues as well as to Africa and Australasia. She is one of the UK’s biggest selling classical artists, having sold well over half a million albums. In 2020 she was honoured to receive the Cobbett Medal for distinguished services to chamber music from the Musicians’ Company guild in the City of London.

“Emma Johnson has realised what lies at the heart of music making when it is at its best: she does not just perform but uses the music to communicate something wonderful.”

Playing with Emma we welcome back our President, Martin Roscoe. With an extraordinary career spanning over four decades, Martin is unarguably one of the UK’s best-loved pianists. In an ever more distinguished career his enduring popularity, and the respect in which he is universally held, are built on a deeply thoughtful musicianship allied to an easy rapport with audiences and fellow musicians alike.
