Hugo Ticciati    violin

Henrik Måwe    piano


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.

Hugo Ticciati embraces the world of contemporary music, collaborating with composers such as Sven-David Sandström, Albert Schnelzer, Anders Hillborg, Djuro Zivkovic, Leonardo Coral, Andrea Tarrodi, Tobias Broström, Thomas  Jennefelt, Sergey N. Evtushenko and Esaias Järnegard. In the coming seasons he will be performing world premières of concertos dedicated to him  in Europe, Asia, and North and South America. Hugo also loves devising concerts and events that combine music with the other arts, notably dance  and literature. He is currently working with the English composer Bill Connor on “An Improvised Violin Concerto.”  This season’s highlights include concertos by Bach, Mozart, Prokofiev, Schnittke, Hartmann, Shchedrin, Piazzolla, Auerbach, Glass, Lutoslawski, Takemitsu and world premieres of concertos by Tobias Broström, Sergey N. Evtushenko and Albert Schnelzer in venues including Carnegie Hall, Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, Chicago Symphony Hall and Cadogan Hall (London).


Next season features tours in China and the USA with his own string orchestra, tours in Sweden and China with Bach’s solo partitas and sonatas,  and a series of concerts at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam.  Hugo has a passion for chamber music and gives regular recitals in prestigious halls across Europe and the Far East, collaborating with artists  such as Anne-Sofie von Otter, Steven Isserlis, Angela Hewitt, Michael Collins, Torleif Thedéen, Leslie Howard, Staffan Scheja, Michael Tsalka and Henrik Måwe. He is also regularly invited to renowned music festivals such as The Baltic Sea Festival (Sweden), Hermitage Music Festival (St Petersburg), St-Denis-Festival (Paris), Cervantino (Mexico), Edinburgh Festival (England), Gotland Chamber Music Festival (Sweden). Hugo is the artistic director of his   own festival O/MODƏRNT at Ulrikdals Palace Theatre Confidencen, Stockholm, and a new festival in Kazan, Russia.


Hugo regularly gives masterclasses and seminars on violin teaching, and lectures on music-related subjects all over the world. In autumn 2008, he was invited to the post of guest violin teacher and lecturer in music history at a newly-started university in New York. At the heart of Hugo’s teaching is the exploration of ways to apply the physical and spiritual aspects of meditation   to the art of practising, playing and living in music. He is currently working on a series of articles with Simone Kotva which explore music-making and repetition through the lens of various strands of Continental Philosophy.


Hugo began his violin studies in London before going to the University of Toronto. He continued his studies with the Russian violinists, Nina and Oleg Balabina in Sweden, where he has now settled as a Swedish citizen. Together with many scholarships Hugo has won the international competitions Giovani Talenti and Rovere d’Oro at San Bartolomeo al Mare, Italy (2002), and the Mendelssohn Cup in Bari, Italy (2004). In 2007 he was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Schools of Music in the United Kingdom.


Hugo plays on a Giovanni Battista Guadagnini from Milan, 1751.

Henrik Måwe, born in Sweden 1981, is considered one of the most prominent Swedish pianists of his generation. He has studied with Prof. Hui-Ying Liu-Tawaststjerna at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and with Prof. Staffan Scheja at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

 He has performed in most of the European countries and in South Africa and the USA. During Spring 2008 he made his debut recital in Stockholm as well as a performance as a soloist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Stockholm. Henrik is also seen and heard frequently on TV, radio and other media.

As a soloist Henrik has performed with a number of Swedish orchestras, for example the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Stockholm, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Västerås Sinfonietta and others, collaborating with conductors such as B Tommy Andersson, Hannu Koivula, and Mats Rondin to mention a few.

He has also given recitals at venues such as the Savigny le Temple and Moulin d´Andé festivals in France, the Gotland Chamber Music Festival and Mälar Music in Sweden, as well as some of the most important recital halls in Sweden.

Being a passionate chamber musician, he has collaborated with some of the most established instrumentalists and singers of Sweden, for example the world famous baritone Håkan Hagegård and many others.

Henrik has also branched out to the field of jazz and improvisation, and has worked with the famous bass player and composer Georg Riedel. Henrik has also devoted whole recitals to improvisation, including getting themes from the audience to improvise on.

Since 2008 Henrik figures as chamber music coach at the “Lilla Akademien” in Stockholm. There he also works as the assistant of Prof. Staffan Scheja.

In 2008 Henrik was awarded the largest and most important scholarship for young musicians in Sweden, the “Rosenborg-Gehrmans” scholarship. Other scholarships received over the years include the Royal Academy of Music, Nordea Bank, and all of the important scholarships for young musicians in Sweden.

Prizes won in competitions include 3rd prize at the FLAME International Piano Competition in Paris, 4th prize at the Val Tidone Competition in Italy, 2nd prize at the Blüthner Nordic Piano Competition in Malmö, as well as prizes in numerous other Swedish competitions.
