Friday 24 May, at 7.30 pm
Flute & Piano

SCHUBERT:  Variationen über das Lied ‘Trockene Blumen’  D 802

POULENC:  Sonata (1957)

 “In [the premiere of Brett Dean’s Sidori Dances] with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Thierry Fischer, the extraordinarily beautiful playing of Adam Walker suggested this young man will be a great exponent of the instrument.”
The Guardian, 2011

In 2009, at the age of 21, Adam Walker was appointed principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra and received the ‘Outstanding Young Artist Award’ at the MIDEM Classique Awards in Cannes.  In 2010 he won a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship Award.  In 2013 he returns to Wigmore Hall with pianist James Baillieu and releases his first CD.

“James Baillieu is surely the leader of the new generation of accompanists and will no doubt occupy the elite position currently held by such as Graham Johnson, Julius Drake, Malcolm Martineau and Roger Vignoles.”
Classical Source Wigmore Hall, 2011


June concert



Friday 5 July, at 7.30 pm

HAYDN: String Quartet in G, Op.77 No.1
TIPPETT: String Quartet No.5 (1990/91)
MENDELSSOHN: String Quartet No.5 in E flat, Op.44 No.3

“The delicate perfection of the sound was a marvel, and in leader Oliver Heath’s hands the recurring dropping figure had an exquisite tenderness [Schumann Quartet No.3]”
Daily Telegraph Wigmore Hall March 2012

The Heath Quartet is rapidly emerging as an exciting and original voice on the international chamber music scene. In 2011 they were awarded a prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Special Ensemble Scholarship and it has just been announced that they were the winners of the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.


Friday 4 October, at 7.30 pm
Cello & Piano

Works by Bach, Mendelssohn and Rachmaninov

“The beauty of Laura van der Heijden’s playing lies in the fact that she has a wonderful expressivity, but never, ever overdoes it, and the pianissimo ending of the concerto was enchanting, ending with just the solo cello, captivating the audience...”
Jane Shuttleworth / Bachtrack / May 2012

At the age of 15, cellist Laura van der Heijden was awarded the title of BBC Young Musician 2012, giving a mesmerising performance of Walton’s Cello Concerto.  She will be the youngest musician to perform in Naunton by a considerable margin!
