26 September 2015 - our season opens with the impressive Cavaleri Quartet, the first Quartet-in-Residence at Oxford University. Multiple prize-winners at the Osaka and Hamburg Competitions, the players are joined by the prodigiously gifted Julian Bliss in Brahms’s much loved Clarinet Quintet.
24 October 2015 brings the globe-trotting Quartetto di Cremona, whose performances are "sleek and elegant as an Armani suit” according to the Strad Magazine.
Tchaikovsky String Quartet No. 1
Brahms String Quartet No. 2
28 November 2015 - we welcome the mind-boggling O Duo, who are as astonishing to watch as they are virtuosic, performing on a wide range of percussion instruments. We’re expecting works by Albéniz, Bach, Chopin, Dave Brubeck, Monti, Prokofiev and Philip Glass, among others. Phew!
23 January 2016: the brilliant violinist Tasmin Little is a popular performer wherever she appears, and tonight’s programme will certainly win her new friends.
Paul Patterson Lusławice Variations
Bach Chaconne from the D Minor Partita
Bach Loure, Gavotte and Gigue from the E Major Partita
5 March 2016 brings the Albany Piano Trio. Richmond audiences like to hear piano trio repertoire, and this ensemble will be performing trios by Haydn, Smetana, Bloch and the seldom heard 20th-century composer Rebecca Clarke.
23 April 2016 - our season is neatly book-ended by the Villiers Quartet, successors to the Cavaleris as Quartet-in-Residence at Oxford. “No praise can be too high”, says Gramophone Magazine of this fine ensemble. Sibelius’s only mature string quartet is followed by a new work by an exciting young Spanish composer, based on a poem by Lorca, and then by one of Beethoven’s three ‘Razumovsky' Quartets. This promises to be a very fine end to our season.
Sibelius Voces Intimae
José González Granero Noche del Amor Insomne
Beethoven Quartet No. 8
