August 2014

Whether you’re a long-time chamber music lover or just discovering this beautiful form of music, you’ll love our August/September tour Salon Series 2014.

We’ll be transporting you back to the days of musical soirees, performing in intimate spaces and gracious settings with three programmes playing on the theme of ‘Music and Ideas’ and including plenty of audience favourites.

We’re looking forward to this brand new series and hope you’ll come along and socialise with friends and us.

Salon 1

If you’re new to chamber music and want to test the waters this programme is for you. Featuring favourite movements from a range of works, the concert finishes with a full multi-movement work from Schubert. The pieces in this concert have been chosen for their popularity with chamber music fans and none are too taxing in length.
