Joe Zeitlin grew up in the Fishguard area and after attending school in the area he obtained music scholarships to Wells Cathedral School, The Purcell School and The Royal Academy of Music. He graduated from the Academy with a First Class Honours BMus in 2005 under David Strange. He has taken part in masterclasses with Steven Isserlis, Gary Hoffman and Steven Doane. Joe has performed for the Peter Gould Music Trust before in another guise, as a member of the Wu Quartet (now the Eden Quartet) with whom he performs regularly across the world.

Ljubica Stojanovic is a twenty-four year old pianist from Serbia. Described as a leading pianist from the younger generation of this country, Ljubica undertook studies on a full scholarship at the conservatoire ‘University of Music Art’ in Belgrade where she studied with Professor Aleksandar Sandorov. Currently, Ljubica continues her Master studies at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. She is the prize-winner of over 20 national and international competitions including the “Grand Prix” International competition for young pianists in Geneva.




 Major cello sonatas are wrapped around a brief and sweet work by the nineteenth century romantic composer David Popper.  Bach’s Sonata was probably written at the time when he was director of the Collegium Musicum in Leipzig and was probably composed for leading musicians of the time. Debussy’s short late sonata is regarded as one of the great pieces written for piano and cello duo.  Beethoven’s sonata op 5 was written for the King of Prussia, Freidrich Willhelm II (who had previously been patron to Mozart), and performed several times at court by Beethoven and the king’s first cellist.  

This programme will be a splendid showcase of the talents of these two young musicians together and the Trust looks forward to welcoming you to another recital given by home grown talent.
