Alasdair Beatson piano
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Taking inspiration straight from the most musical of cities into our own city centre for a unique bank holiday chamber music trail, join Alasdair Beatson and ensembles of RNS musicians for a day of glorious Viennese-inspired chamber music.

While giving you occasion to explore some of Newcastle City Centre’s most intriguing churches, the musicians will perform chamber music by Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Brahms and Johann Strauss, the composers most closely and directly associated with Vienna. Alongside these sit works by Joseph de Boulogne, Johanna Doderer, and Ernst von Dohnanyi – by turns charming, intriguing and rollicking, and all connected to the musical heart of Vienna

We start in Gallowgate’s medieval St Andrew’s, then move right to the heart of the city to St John the Baptist, and finish our trail in the recently restored Georgian splendour of All Saints church on the Quayside.

Take part in the whole trail! Come to all 3 concerts for £30 – Book Now.
