Jubilee Quartet

The Jubilee Quartet recently won 2nd prize at the prestigious Szymanowski competition and is increasingly in demand across the UK and abroad. Formed in London in 2006 they were also first prize winners of the ‘Val Tidone International Chamber Music Competition’ 2010 and the ‘St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition’ 2013, and third prize winners of the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition 2013.

They held a Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music from 2012-13, and are the current Richard Carne Junior Fellows at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Please join them for an evening of superlative music-making, from the intriguing dissonances of Mozart’s K465 to the dark passion of Brahms’s first string quartet.

Werther Ensemble

The Werther Ensemble gave their first performance as a piano quartet in February 2013, when they played Brahms’ op 60 -’the Werther’ - from which they take their name.  In May 2013 they made an enormous impact at the inaugural Whittington International Chamber Music Festival, of which James Barralet is the Artistic Director, and were again resident ensemble in 2014.

Their schedule for 2014/15 includes a series of concerts at St John’s Smith Square exploring European piano quartets, a return to the Whittington International Festival playing Mendelssohn several performances of rare English works for the genre.

Tonight’s programme consists of works written while their composers were at the earliest stages of their careers, from Beethoven’s youthful C major quartet, through Mendelssohn virtuosic showpiece and culminating in Walton’s colourful and exciting early masterpiece.
