Sunday Afternoon Music Recitals commence on 6th May at 15.30
The Mozart Vienna Piano Concerto Series 1
Chad Kelly returns from his first season at the Bayerische Staatsoper to open the 2018 concert series with the first of three concerts in his Mozart Vienna Piano Concerto Series.
Mozart completed the composition of three piano concertos in 1783 whilst in Vienna. For the wider consumption of these works – for audiences and publishers alike – Mozart envisioned a ‘chamber’ accompaniment of String Quartet. Former Director of Music, Chad Kelly, begins his exploration of these rarely performed works with Mozart’s Piano Concerto in A major, K. 414.

Concert Wednesday 7th March at 19.30 – Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde marks the culmination of a lifetime spent fusing the forms of song and symphony. An immensely beautiful and enigmatic work, it is here performed in a stunning chamber arrangement by Iain Farringdon, to highlight the centenary of the foundation of the Society for Private Musical Performances in Vienna, 1918. After the success of Mahler’s 4th Symphony last summer, Finnegan Downie Dear returns to conduct this concert, celebrating some of the best young singers and instrumentalists that London has to offer. The historic and atmospheric setting of St.Anne’s, Kew Green, will provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy this uniquely intimate reading of a monumental work. Richard Dowling – Tenor, Kate Howden – Mezzo Soprano, Shadwell Ensemble, Finnegan Downie Dear – Conductor – Tickets £15.00 (£10.00 concessions) on the door
