29 November 2014 - The Carducci Quartet: Poetry and Prayers
The Anglo-Irish Carducci Quartet is always welcome in Richmond, and attracts a large audience. The members are two married couples, a fact which shows in the astonishing rapport between the performers. Tonight’s programme includes Beethoven’s Op. 132 quartet, Mozart’s Quartet No. 15, and Philip Glass’s No. 3, Mishima.
24 January 2015 - Hungarian Dances: Bradley Creswick (violin), Margaret Fingerhut (piano), Jessica Duchen

14 February 2015 - The Dante Quartet
Works by Haydn, Bartók and Beethoven. The Dante Quartet has won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s chamber music award and BBC Music Magazine’s 'Chamber Choice'. Violinist Krysia Osostowicz will be familiar to anyone who heard her flawless playing with the Endymion Ensemble last season, and cellist Richard Jenkinson has made several memorable appearances in Richmond with pianist Benjamin Frith. We’re expecting a good evening.
21 March 2015 - Cellophony
Can one ever have too many cellos? This superlative group of eight (!) cellists opened a recent Swaledale Festival, and was a huge success. Tonight’s Cellophony concert includes Villa Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras and Rachmaninov’s lovely Vocalise, with soprano Jen Witton.
