Here is our programme of four concerts for 2020 (please keep scrolling down!):

FRIDAY 15 MAY 2020      THE TALLIS SCHOLARS (vocal ensemble)

 

“…as near extra-terrestrial as you can get, sitting in a concert hall.”       Fiona Maddocks, The Observer 

Through four decades of performance and numerous award-winning recordings, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have contributed enormously to establishing sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music.  They continue to develop their exclusive sound, praised by reviewers for its supple clarity and tone, and to bring fresh interpretations to music by contemporary as well as past composers.

The programme is called ‘Metamorphosis’ and aims to show how composers from three separate traditions  -  Catholic, Anglican and Russian Orthodox  -  have interpreted the same texts, central to Christians in every age.  The Catholic and Anglican composers are from the Renaissance period;  the Orthodox are modern.

FRIDAY 12 JUNE      VAN KUIJK STRING QUARTET

 

   

“Style, energy and a sense of risk….  These four young Frenchmen made the music smile.”    The Guardian

 Recent ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation) Rising Stars, and former BBC New Generation Artists, the Van Kuijk Quartet swept the board at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet competition, winning First Prize as well as the prizes for Best Beethoven and Best Haydn performances.  The French ensemble is now an established presence in many of the most prestigious international venues. 

The programme will feature quartets by Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann.

 

FRIDAY 3 JULY     LAUREN ZHANG  (solo piano) 

 

“….Lauren Zhang’s power never let up,  yet what most impressed was the magical delicacy of her playing in the softer passages.”       BBC Young Musician Final, The Times, May 2018

In 2018, Lauren Zhang won the BBC Young Musician Competition.  Her performance of Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto with the CBSO earned widespread critical acclaim.  She went on to make her BBC Proms debut and is now in demand as soloist throughout the UK and further afield.

Lauren will play works by Haydn, Chopin, Schubert and Liszt.

 

FRIDAY 25 SEPTEMBER       RACHEL PODGER & MARCIN SWIATKIEWICZ (violin & harpsichord)    

 

 

Rachel Podger is “…the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin”      The Times 

Internationally renowned baroque violinist Rachel Podger has established herself as a leading interpreter of the music of the Baroque and Classical periods. Rachel has performed as a soloist and guest director with many of the world’s top ensembles;  she was named Gramophone Magazine’s ‘Artist of the Year’ in 2018.  Rachel will be joined by leading harpsichordist Marcin Świątkiewicz. 

The programme will include works by J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, Franz Benda and Johann Graun.
