Mollie Wrafter and Justine Gormley, recipients of the 2020 BVOF Irish Heritage Award, recorded a performance of Brahms 3rd Violin Sonata especially for BVOF this Christmas.

This was filmed at the Embassy of Ireland in London as part of the Irish Heritage ‘Christmas by Candlelight Concert’. Mollie and Justine were both due to perform at the Festival this year with another award recipient, Ellen Mawhinney, and we hope you will enjoy their special message to our BVOF audience!
