Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. String Quartet No 1, 'Kreutzer Sonata' - Leoš Janácek
  2. Romance for Bassoon and Orchestra, arranged for bassoon and string quartet Op 62 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Court Studies, from The Tempest, arranged by the composer for clarinet, violin, cello and piano - Thomas Adès
  4. Quintet for piano and strings in A minor Op 84 - Sir Edward Elgar

Elgar’s Piano Quintet is considered by many to be his greatest chamber music work. It is said to have been inspired by legends of Spanish monks struck by lightning while conducting sacrilegious activities in the Sussex countryside. Thomas Adès’s brief Court Studies, from his opera The Tempest, are a great companion to Janácek’s Kreutzer Sonata, which is also tempestuous. Its propulsive rhythms and speech-like melodies express pathos and ecstasy through an amazing and unexpected collective string sound.
