      Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s Vancouver debut

      How much buzz is there around teenage cello sensation Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s Vancouver debut? Enough that his upcoming Vancouver Recital Society concert is sold-out, and for good reason: the British prodigy has already been picked as 2016’s musician of the year by the BBC, an honour accompanied by a Decca recording contract and the use of a 400-year-old Amati cello. Kanneh-Mason will get to display his individual prowess on Gaspar Cassadó’s Suite for Solo Cello, and then will be joined by his sister Isata on works by Ludwig van Beethoven and Dmitri Shostakovich. If that program isn’t intriguing enough, Sheku and Isata are just two of six musical siblings, all similarly gifted. Kanneh-Mason: remember that name!

      The Vancouver Recital Society presents Sheku Kanneh-Mason at the Vancouver Playhouse on Sunday (December 3).
