Henschel Quartet

Haydn Quartet opus 64 no 2
Schuloff Quartet no 1
Schubert Quartet in G major D887

'One of the best groups in the world' plays Schubert's final quartet masterpiece plus colourful works by Haydn and Erwin Schuloff, a forgotten holocaust victim only now being duly recognised

Ianthe Ensemble

15 November 2015

Ianthe Ensemble

Ligeti Horn Trio
Franck Violin Sonata
Brahms Horn Trio

Young prize winners bring us a pairing of Ligeti's remarkable 'homage to Brahms' with Brahms' own joyful Horn Trio and César Franck's intense and passionate violin sonata

Frith Piano Quartet

Frith Piano Quartet

Schumann Piano Quartet
Mark Anthony Turnage Three for Two
Dvořák Piano Quartet opus 87

London Chamber Collective

17 January 2016

London Chamber Collective

Mozart Clarinet Quintet
Schubert Octet

A programme of sheer delight: two of the best loved chamber works of all time performed by an ensemble of dedicated, energetic and internationally acclaimed performers

Pavel Haas Quartet

7 February 2016

Pavel Haas Quartet

(Winners of the 2014 Gramophone Chamber Music Recording of the year)

Prokofiev Quartet no 1
Pavel Haas Quartet no 2
Shostakovich Quartet no 10

This is an ensemble of world-wide repute, named after the Czech composer who died in Auschwitz. The Shostakovich is approachable as it is unsettling, the Pavel Hass has both poetry and comedy and the Prokofiev is a work of irrepressible lyricism

Marsyas Ensemble

6 March 2016

Marsyas Trio with Jessica Summers (soprano)

joined also by Patrick Dawkins (violin/viola) & Max Welford (clarinet)

Couperin Concerts Royaux: Second Concert
Ravel Chansons Madécasses
Haydn Trio no 29 in G Hob XV:15
Schoenberg Pierrot Lunaire opus 21

The Marsyas Trio is truly superb, dauntless in difficult contemporary music, but also breathing new life into such neglected wonders as Haydn's Flute Trios. Schoenberg's 'Pierrot Lunaire' is a work balanced between concert hall and cabaret and in this, with Jessica Summers, they are ideally matched

Trio Isimsiz

24 April 2016

Trio Isimsiz

Schubert Piano Trio in Eflat D929
Dvořák Piano Trio no 3 in F minor

This young trio, the name is Turkish for 'without a name', is going from strength to strength, honing the great piano trios at the UK's main venues. Two such works are in our concert; the Schubert has an unforgettable slow movement and the Dvořák is a work of singular power and ambition
