Location Beverley Art Gallery
We are thrilled to return to Beverley’s beautiful Art Gallery for this lunchtime concert of chamber music greats.

Mozart’s G minor string quintet is one of his masterpieces on this scale. In his hands the key is one of drama and intrigue, an intensely operatic dialogue; the interplay between instruments is heightened by the addition of a second viola to the usual quartet lineup, giving a depth to the sonority.

Vaughan Williams’ Phantasy Quintet for the same forces is inspired, like so much of his output, by the soaring lines of English renaissance music, generating an ethereal sense of space and timelessness. Britten too was an ardent admirer of his English musical forefathers, and so we open this programme with his arrangement for string quartet of Purcell’s glorious Chacony.

Book fast to avoid disappointment – this is an intimate venue and sure to sell out.
