For the third event in this new series of chamber music concerts in Southwark Cathedral, join London Concertante for two magnificent 19th century works from France and Germany

Fauré Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor

Schubert Piano Quintet in A major 'The Trout'

For the third event in this new series of chamber music concerts in Southwark Cathedral, join London Concertante for two magnificent 19th century works from France and Germany. Fauré's Piano Quartet was written during the break-off of his engagement to Marianne Viardot, and the work portrays both the heartbreak and fond memories of happier times in the relationship. Schubert's beguiling and bewitching quintet was commissioned by a friend after he heard Schubert's song Die Forelle (The Trout). He was asked to write a piece featuring the song's theme, and Schubert duly obliged, adding an extra movement for good measure!

For the second event in this new series of chamber music concerts hosted in the beautiful surroundings of Southwark Cathedral, join three virtuosic soloists from the acclaimed chamber orchestra London Concertante for an evening of Baroque music performed by candlelight. Norwegian composer, Johan Halvorsen's remarkable reimagining of Handel's Passacaglia is set between three works by Bach that showcase his mastery at composing for the cello, violin and harpsichord in turn, before the concert concludes with Corelli's lively and inventive set of variations on the 'Folia' theme.
