Newcastle Chamber Music Society 2017/18
Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Dvorak are among the composers who have written some of their greatest music for small groups, and many top soloists such as Janine Jansen and Martha Argerich, as well as talented amateurs, go out of their way to play this rich repertoire.
After over a century of searching for the perfect acoustic, the Newcastle Chamber Music Society has found it across the river at Sage Two!
The newcomers this season are the prizewinning young Castalian Quartet, formed in 2011 and already in great demand.
Paul Barritt, former leader of Northern Sinfonia, brings his Zimro trio in a varied programme featuring Mozart’s ‘Kegelstatt’ trio for viola, clarinet and piano. Other ensembles are returning by popular demand – the Michelangelo Quartet includes the worldrenowned Nobuko Imai on viola and the legendary Borodin Quartet (formed in 1945, with Rostropovich as its founding cellist) returns to end the season in true Russian style.
