Chris Windass ~ viola, Jane Fenton ~ cello
Piano Trio Op.11 in B flat majorBeethoven 
String Quartet No.17 K458 "The Hunt"Mozart 
Piano Quintet in E flat major Op.44 Schumann 

Viv McLean and Martyn Jackson have both given wonderful recitals for the Club in the past and we look forward to hearing them in this Ensemble playing three great works from the chamber music repertoire. The Ensemble's programme features three great chamber music works.

The bright and boisterous "Hunt" quartet is one of the works that led Haydn to say that Mozart "was the greatest composer he had known" whilst the Piano Quintet is regarded as one of Schumann's finest works and one which changed the format for ever.

Ensemble Mirage

Matthew Scott ~ clarinet
Alexandra Lomeiko ~ violin
Alexandra Vaduva ~ piano
 Contrasts Sz111 for clarinet, violin and piano Bartok 
 Trio for clarinet, violin and piano Khachaturian 
 L'invitation au Château Poulenc 
 Suite from "The Soldier's Tale" Stravinsky 
 5 pieces Shostakovich (arr Atovmyan) 
 Trio for clarinet, violin and piano Schoenfield 

We are delighted to welcome back three young musicians whose individual performances at the club have been greatly enjoyed. As a Trio, their programme is based largely on Eastern European folk music including exciting works by Bartok and Khachaturian. Poulenc's Suite of Incidental Music for Jean Anouilh's play "L'Invitation au Château" is a rarely performed (because unpublished) piece and this is a great chance to hear it.

The support of the Countess of Munster Musical Trust for this concert is gratefully acknowledged
