Newcastle International Chamber Music Series
In the 2018/19 Season, Newcastle International Chamber Music Series present six concerts which feature some of the greatest works of the classical and romantic chamber music repertoire alongside iconic pieces from the 20th century, including both of the astonishing quartets by Janáček.
The season opens with leading British performers the Doric Quartet, firm favourites with the audience in Sage Two. Then you are invited to hear ensembles new to Sage Gateshead and to the Society: the prize-winning North American Calidore Quartet, the young and vivacious Vision Quartet from Berlin, the multinational Isimsiz Trio with their guest violist, and the newly-formed Poster/Johnston Trio (all of whose members performed last season at Sage Gateshead, the cellist Guy Johnston as soloist in the Elgar concerto with RNS). The season ends with a flourish: glorious Czech music from the highly-regarded Martinů Quartet.
