A spokesperson for nadsa said: ‘The next concert in the series is on Friday October 18, and will be given by Kosmos.

‘The evening will feature a programme unique to Kosmos, inspired by music from around the globe. Wild Gypsy fiddling; emotive Jewish and Greek music; hot-blooded tango; interpretations of Japanese, Polish and Sephardic songs; new arrangements; references to classical composers including Bach, Brahms and Sarasate.
Described by The Times as having ‘telepathic rapport, dazzling virtuosity, serious scholarship, intellectual curiosity and impeccable musicianship’, Kosmos Ensemble is re-defining the relationship between classical and world music. It is united by a shared passion for improvisation, music from around the globe and the rigours of classical training.
