Jennifer Pike first came to prominence in 2002 after her performance of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in the Barbican with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sir Andrew Davis, winning the title of BBC Young Musician of the Year at the age of 12. Acclaimed for her ‘dazzling interpretative flair and exemplary technique’ (Classic FM), she became a BBC New Generation Artist in 2008 and was presented with the first international London Music Masters Award.

Tom Poster is internationally recognised as a pianist of outstanding artistry and versatility, equally in demand as soloist and chamber musician across an unusually extensive repertoire. He won First Prize at the Scottish International Piano Competition 2007, the Ensemble Prize at the Honens International Piano Competition 2009, and the keyboard sections of the Royal Over-Seas League and BBC Young Musician of the Year Competitions in 2000. Born in 1981, Tom studied with Joan Havill at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he held a Postgraduate Fellowship, and at King's College, Cambridge, where he gained a Double First in Music.
