The Lantivet Duo are redefining what a violin and piano duo can be. Based in London, they are made up of Cornish violinist Anna Brigham and Scottish pianist Brendan Musk. The pair are pioneering new territory, weaving classical, folk, electronic and world music together. They combine traditional repertoire with their own compositions and arrangements, new commissioned work from acclaimed composers, and collaborations with other incredible musicians. Their music spans genres, centuries, and continents, representing a mix of genders and ethnicities. They are exploring and celebrating global music.
Separately Anna and Brendan have played in venues such as the Wigmore Hall, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, the Egg in Beijing, and the Royal Albert Hall, as well as performing at Ronnie Scott’s, on the main stage of the Secret Garden Party and headlining at the Warwick Folk Festival. As a duo they have played in concert halls, theatres, and for the Spanish Embassy, but they also take their music out of traditional settings and into living rooms and gardens.
When the first Covid-19 lockdown was announced, the duo immediately set up the ‘Lantivet Living Room Series’, giving regular live-streamed concerts from their living room. Recommended by Classic FM as one of the ‘best classical online streams’, each concert of the series is unique. The duo compose and arrange new music, commission new pieces and sometimes invite guest artists to collaborate. These ‘pay what you feel’ concerts have been watched by thousands of people.

Chichester Cathedral's Lunchtime Concert series is self-supporting, and thrives through the generosity of its audiences. While there is no charge for admission, we suggest a minimum donation of £3 per person, with Gift Aid applied if possible.
In line with our hopes to keep everyone safe and well, we will be maintaining socially distanced seating until further notice. As such, with the subsequent reduced capacity, we ask that audiences book their places in advance through Ticketsource. We will have a list of names that have booked on the door: you do not need to bring the tickets with you.
Thank you. We look forward to welcoming you back!
