Schubert Ensemble Piano Quartets

Schubert Ensemble Piano Quartets


The Schubert Ensemble returns to the Holywell Music Room with a programme of much-loved piano quartets.

After 35 years at the forefront of British Chamber Music, the Ensemble has decided that this will be its last season. Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society's Chamber Ensemble Award, the Ensemble has performed in over 40 countries, has held residencies in universities and conservatoires, has broadcast extensively and released over 25 critically acclaimed CDs. Commissioning has always been important to the ensemble and the recent premiere of Judith Weir's A Song of Departure at the Wigmore Hall in March was the 50th major commission. The Ensemble has recently added to its recorded legacy with a series of live concerts that can be found on its YouTube channel.

With over 50 concerts in this farewell season the group has had the opportunity for its five members to say thank you and goodbye to the many good friends they have made over the years. Playing for the last time in the Holywell, a favourite hall, will be especially celebratory.

Duration: 1 hour 50mins with interval
