President: Steven Isserlis


Barnes Music Society is proud to have as its President the world-famous cellist Steven Isserlis.  Born in Barnes, he comes from a very musical family.  His two sisters are professional string players (Annette a violist and Rachel a violinist), and his grandfather Julian Isserlis was a composer.


 The Society in its current form was created through a merger in 1985 of Castelnau Concerts with the Barnes Music Club, although its roots go back to the 1950s.  Our outgoing President, the late Stephen Dodgson, had been Chairman of Castlenau Concerts, whilst the new President's late father, George Isserlis, had been Chairman of the Barnes Music Club.  Both played a major role in maintaining the Society's high standards.


Barnes Music Society aims to foster appreciation of music, promoting first-class concerts, and encouraging other musical activities especially involving young musicians.  These last are achieved by the Saturday family concerts for children and by the annual concert each May given by young musicians.

Internationally recognized for his groundbreaking contributions to contemporary clarinet music, praised by Musical Opinion (the UK's oldest classical music magazine) for his 'constantly beautiful tone', Luca Luciano started his career at a very young age and has since 'established himself as the friendly face of contemporary clarinet', according to the Clarinet & Saxophone Magazine.

His work has been described as 'romantic, soulful and technically superb' and, with a repertoire that embraces more than two centuries of Western music, Luca is considered one of the most versatile musicians of his generation. Luciano has presented new works (either his compositions or music especially written/arranged for him) and rarely played music at some of the most established venues of the UK, Europe and America with a portfolio that also features the best universities of the UK and South America. He is mainly active as a solo artist presenting original projects via concerts/recitals and his exp includes TV and radio performances, master-classes and lecture-recitals, six solo albums, orchestra and chamber music.
