We are delighted to welcome back the Chilingirian Quartet, who have performed with us numerous times since 2003. Levon Chilingirian’s insights into music remain unique.
And my Hummel Ensemble, reformed to perform the chamber music and arrangements of the grossly under-rated composer Johann Nepomuk Hummel and other contemporary arrangements (all of which we commission), makes its first appearance under new Director, Benjamin Frith.
You will hear wonderful piano concertos by Hummel (The Wedding Concerto) & Weber that you have almost certainly never heard, and a world premier, a chamber version of Franz Clement’s Violin Concerto. Clement commissioned and premiered Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, and his own earlier concerto is a glorious masterpiece.
The sun will be shining from 5.30am to 10pm!
