Welcome to Tring Chamber mUsic

 
 

Welcome to the fourteenth season of Tring Chamber Music. Programmes this summer contain our popular mixture of familiar masterpieces and relative rarities. In our May concert we welcome star clarinettist Matthew Hunt to play Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in a Mozart based programme which also contains items to titillate 20th century tastebuds. The June event has expanded into a veritable Beethoven weekend festival of 3 concerts. Here is an unmissable opportunity to follow Beethoven’s creative awakenings, covering the period of the onset of deafness through to his maturity, in performances of his 10 violin sonatas performed in chronological order. In addition there are expert talks and readings to enrich this Beethoven experience. In July’s programme in Aldbury normal order is restored with possibly the 2 greatest string quintets ever written; in Brahms and Mozart we have a feast of poignant riches indeed. Stand-out rarity of the season must be Chausson’s wonderful Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Quartet in a French programme in September. We have invited the eminent Coull Quartet to play both this and Ravel’s timeless String Quartet in an evening of French romantic sensuality.  Informative introductions by the artists form an important part of each evening’s performance. Our aim is to move and excite, to entertain with a wide variety of repertoire, and above all to share great, live music performed by consummate musicians in a relaxed and informal setting.
