Mozart and Mendelssohn – Musical Miracles

Echor Music

Our opening concert by the Chiltern based Echor is a delightful blend of classical music from three of the periods most beloved composers. Featuring the Schubert String Trio, the Mozart Clarinet Quintet and the Mendelssohn Octet, this concert promises to be a special evening of music.  Mozart's Clarinet Quintet carries a warm and lyrical quality, while Mendelssohn's Octet is playful and full of energy. This concert is the perfect opportunity to experience the beauty and intricacy of these timeless works.

Concert 2 Saturday 28th October 2023

Spirit of Eternal Sunshine

Brother Tree Sound

This concert takes us on a wonderfully uplifting musical journey, with music from three of the greatest composers for string quartet - Haydn, Beethoven and Dvořák.  Brother Tree Sound is a classical string quartet with a focus on performing new chamber music alongside core repertoire.  The concert includes emerging composer Ben Nobuto's piece 'Skip', which Brother Tree Sound commissioned in 2021 - an infectiously fun moment in this programme.

Concert 3 Saturday 18th November 2023

Piano Recital

Cristian Sandrin – Piano
Cristian Sandrin brings a programme of great romantic piano music that is not to be missed.   The concert includes masterpieces from Chopin, Brahms and Liszt, music which has been loved by audiences for over 150 years.  We also have a piece by French composer Lili Boulanger, who composed beautiful impressionist style music in her short career.

Concert 4 Saturday 24th February 2024

Flute and Harp Recital

Frederico Paixão – flute
Milo Harper - harp

Milo Harper and Frederico Paixão bring us a concert of music for flute and harp.  This delightful combination of instruments is well-suited to the acoustic of our venue in Amersham.  The programme explores the symbolism of the flute and harp and evokes impressionistic watercolours; from Cras's sea voyages and Boulanger's starlit skies, to the mysterious mythical creatures of Debussy and Alwyn. Milo and Frederico formed a duo while studying at the Royal Academy of Music and are busy with duo recitals this season. They are both successful orchestral musicians, having performed internationally with leading ensembles such as the European Union Youth Orchestra and the Philharmonia, but chamber music remains a very important aspect of their careers.

Handel in the Strand

Ensemble Hesperi

A lively concert of baroque music brought to us by Ensemble Hesperi. The concert will provide us with a delightful snapshot of London’s busy  musical life in the late 17th and early 18th century. The programme features works by luminaries and lesser mortals from the candle-lit Age of Baroque. The concert traces the outlines of a century of music making, with a rich selection of airs, dances, variations and sonatas. 

Ensemble Hesperi is a dynamic and innovative London-based period ensemble, with a passion for showcasing early music through intelligent, distinctive programming.
