Our new series kicks-off in August 2024 with six performances in Cornwall by two international concert artists, who have come together as BenOla Duo. Polish classical guitarist Aleksandra Sapok & UK lutenist Ben Salfield will perform duets from the 16th-17th century lute and 19th century French piano repertoires before the interval, ahead of a solo programme performed by Aleksandra.

Aleksandra Sapok is a multiple national and international music prize-winner who has twice won the award for Poland's best young musician. A concert artist of the highest calibre, she has performed across Europe and been described as one of the finest talents of her generation. Aleksandra is also known as a leading classical guitar teacher.

 

Ben Salfield has widely been described as one of the world's finest lutenists. His career has spanned 35 years and included concerts at venues and festivals in most European countries, to critical acclaim. Ben has had fourteen music editions published, and his masterclasses and media broadcasts across the Continent are also noteworthy.

BenOla Duo was formed in 2023 with the dovetailing of the personalities, lives and musical interests of dynamic Polish classical guitar soloist Aleksandra Sapok and veteran UK lutenist Ben Salfield (performing on 10-course renaissance guitar or 'lutar'). Last summer the pair guested at a number of Cornish festivals to try out some ideas and early score arrangements, before heading back to Poland, where Aleksandra invited Ben to perform with her as a guest artist in Warsaw. This series of recitals in Cornwall marks the duo's first full outing in the United Kingdom, ahead of planned tours in several European countries in 2025.
