Ensemble 360 bassoonist Amy Harman wins at Young Classical Artist Trust finals following last-minute performance in Sheffield

Bassoonist with Music in the Round’s Ensemble 360, Amy Harman, celebrates a win at the Young Classical Artist Trust (YCAT) finals, which took place at Wigmore Hall in London on Friday 16 May.

Selected for the finals from over 120 applicants, Amy’s win follows a last-minute performance of the same piece, DUTILLEUX Sarabande et cortège for bassoon and piano, at Music in the Round’s May Festival on Wednesday 14 May. Amy stepped in and agreed to play the work with Ensemble 360’s pianist Tim Horton with just a couple of hours’ notice, when the Ensemble’s cellist Gemma Rosefield was confirmed too unwell to perform and the programme for the lunchtime concert had to be changed.

Amy Harman comments:
‘I’m thrilled to have been selected as a YCAT artist and there could have been no better preparation than performing one of my final pieces to the fantastic audience in Sheffield. I feel very lucky to be part of Ensemble 360 and Music in the Round and I’m looking forward to combining this with the fantastic opportunities that lie ahead with YCAT.’

Since its foundation in 1984, YCAT has identified exceptional young musicians through a rigorous audition process. In the third and final round four outstanding young soloists and ensembles, selected from over 120 applicants in the preliminary and semi-final rounds, had to audition before members of the public and a distinguished panel of judges. The three other new artists also selected in the Finals for representation by YCAT are: Peter Moore, trombone; Alexander Ullman, piano and Jonathan Ware, piano (chamber/accompaniment).

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Music in the Round, based in Sheffield, is the UK’s leading promoter of chamber music outside of London. It is dedicated to presenting the best in small-scale classical music in an informal atmosphere. Their recent Love & War Festival of Chamber Music, held at the Crucible Studio in Sheffield from 9-17 May featured 21 events, ranging from a Bring and Sing concert with over 60 amateur singers to lunchtime chamber music concerts and evening performances incorporating both chamber music and readings by actors such as Penelope Wilton and Tom Durham.

Music in the Round now promotes more than 100 concerts a year through its three main series, in Autumn, Spring and May. The Autumn series of concerts will be announced in July, with tickets on public sale from 19 July (and to Friends of Music in the Round from 12 July).
