Coming up! Chamber Music Weekend

From Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music

A Happy New Year to all and welcome to our first John Innes concerts in 2016. We start with a weekend of music devised by the brilliant young Belgian cellist David Cohen, who has assembled an impressive team of fellow musicians from Canada, Russia and the UK. Of particular interest is the final Sunday afternoon concert featuring the  Michael Nyman Quartet written especially for the Smith Quartet. David Higgins, who has been commissioned to write a especially for this concert, is one of the most exciting and innovative young composers  who has already notched up compositions for BBC Proms. Gordon Crosse’s new cello sonata also written for David Cohen, will get two performances (15th & 17th)– two world premieres in a weekend cannot be bad!  The weekend finishes with  Schubert’s glorious string quintet, which many consider to be amongst the finest pieces of chamber music ever written. Hope to see you sometime over the weekend. Roger

P.S. Both the Ibragimova concerts on 8th & 22nd January are fully reserved  so please don’t come along unless you are on the list! All other chapel concerts are fine for space just turn up and pay n the door!
