Paola Delucchi and Albert Lau perform a rich programme of music for violin, from the 18th to the early 20th century. Enjoy pieces by two composers whose portraits feature in the Museum’s Picture Gallery – George Frideric Handel and Carl Maria von Weber – alongside Edward Elgar’s magical late Sonata.

Violinist Paola Delucchi has performed and organised concerts across Europe as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. She has played in numerous ensembles performing baroque to more contemporary repertoires, and has won several renowned competitions including the Harold Craxton Prize. In 2012, she founded the Apeiron Piano Trio alongside pianist Albert Lau.

Albert Lau (MMus, LRAM, LRSM) was born in Hong Kong and performs internationally both as a solo pianist and as a chamber musician. His repertoire spans from Bach to Birtwistle, and from rarities in the piano literature to his own transcriptions. He was named a Young Steinway Artist by Steinway & Sons in 2018.
