Ensemble 360

Monday 27 October 2014 £16, £14 concessions incl. BF* The Harlequin Room. Doors 7pm

From the seductive opening melody of Dvorák’s Quintet, the work of a composer at the peak of his powers, to the dynamic contrasts of Beethoven’s Septet, this is a concert full of beauty, ‘wild dancing’ and happiness, brimming with vitality and energy.

Sublime Shostakovich

Friday 14 November 2014 £14.75, £19, £21, £24.25, £29.50* "Kids for a Quid"

Praised for its charming simplicity, carefree spirit and lyrical warmth, Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto is one of his happiest and most direct works. Its sublime slow movement is its crowning glory however. Opening with a cloud-shrouded string theme in a minor key, the piano enters in the major, like the sun breaking through, an effect as magical as it is simple.

La Serenissima

Great Beginnings

Thursday 15 January 2015 £14.75, £19, £21, £24.25, £29.50* "Kids for a Quid"

In structure, Beethoven's Piano Concerto in B-flat Major shares many traits with Mozart’s piano concertos, but in style it displays many daring deviations which are unquestionably Beethoven and reveal a remarkably sure hand belying the youthfulness of its composer.
