Relax and enjoy music inspired by The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet & Architecture, at this free concert curated by pianist Sholto Kynoch

Mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately, recently described by 'The Financial Times' as 'mesmerising' is joined by prize-winning violinist Sophie Rosa for the final concert of the series. They peform Debussy's last completed work, his violin sonata, alongside songs from Fauré's 'La bonne Chanson' and Berlioz's masterful 'Les Nuits d'été', written in the year of Monet's birth. 

The three performers come together for a performance of 'Violons dans le soir' by Saint-Säens where the haunting sounds of a violin evoke a passionate outpouring.
