2017-18 Season


In our next season we have two string quartets: the Saconni Quartet and the Villiers Quartet, leading quartets of young UK players. They each play one of Dvořák's last two string quartets. Ukrainian-born pianist Alexei Grynyuk gives a recital of classics from the Romantic piano repertoire and Michael Foyle (violin), BBC Young Musician of the Year award winner, gives a recital spanning three centuries. This season's programme includes a Wind Quintet, the New London Chamber Ensemble, who present a programme full of interest and variety. And two chosen contestants in the Sevenoaks Young Musicians Competition, Henry Hargreaves (cello) and Rebecca Leung (piano), share a program that offers us a glimpse of up and coming young musical talent. Finally, we have the Piano Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch, three performers with international reputations, in a programme that includes two of the great 19th century masterpieces of the genre.
