Concerts 2019/2020

London Chamber Music Society at Kings Place

The London Chamber Music Society presents another fine array of chamber music for 2019/20. Our contributions to Venus Unwrapped, a celebration of women in music, include the exciting discovery of the lost violin sonatas by Agnes Zimmermann, performed by MathildeMilwidsky and Petr Limonov. We welcome oboist Emily Pailthorpe and the Piatti Quartet in Maconchy’s Oboe Quintet, and also the Chiaroscuro Quartet with Fanny Mendelssohn’s String Quartet.

We feature the Lipatti Quartet, in our collaboration with the Park Lane Group, and the celebrated Rosamunde Trio. Larger-scale events include the Tchaikovsky Camerata, in a programme of Russian Romantic Classics, and a 70th birthday concert for the London Mozart Players, including symphonies by Mozart and Schubert.

We also host the Fitzwilliam, Allegri and Carducci quartets, and the Chilingirian Quartet in a Nature Unwrapped event, exploring the rich theme of nature and music. Also in this series, the Firebird Orchestra present ornithological pieces, including Delius’s evocation of a cuckoo in spring and Haydn’s famous ‘Hen’ Symphony, and we welcome Jack Liebeck and friends in a ‘Haunted Forest’ programme.

Other events include the Aquinas Trio, our annual Bach concert with Martin Feinstein, and Divertimenti with the London premiere of a work by Sally Beamish. The Northern Chords Festival Ensemble and Jonathan Bloxham join us with piano quartets by Mozart and Brahms, and violinist Philippe Graffin presents the UK premiere of a newly discovered sonata by Ysaÿe.

  We host two cello and piano duos, Raphael Wallfisch and John York, and Nadège Rochat and Anthony Romaniuk in an exciting late morning concert – a new venture for the LCMS at Kings Place. Elsewhere in London, we continue our association with the Royal Over-Seas League in a concert given by the Fine Arts Quartet in Piccadilly on November 24.

There is something for everyone in our 2019/20 season, and I look forward to seeing you there.

London Chamber Music at Kings Place

The superb new concert hall at Kings Place – the first in London for 25 years – has opened an exciting new chapter for the London Chamber Music Society, which can trace its origins to Victorian music making in London in the 1870s, and the regular Sunday Concerts that developed at South Place and then the Conway Hall from 1929.

The inheritance of the Sunday Concerts is special, and our Concert Series aims to continue that rich legacy – which has long been part of the musical life-blood of the capital – by bringing the very best classical chamber music to London audiences at affordable prices.

The list of famous artists and ensembles appearing through the years reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of music history, and includes Henry Wood, Frank Bridge, Albert Sammons, Samuel Coleridge Taylor, Goossens, Ysaye, Percy Grainger, Primrose, Harriet Cohen, Myra Hess, John Ireland and many more. Britain’s most celebrated string quartets have regularly appeared in the Series, from the Brosa and Amadeus to the Allegri, Lindsay and Chilingirian Quartets. In 2008 we moved to a beautiful new location, the Kings Place, and continue our theme of celebrating some of the best British chamber music for strings and also in commissioning new chamber works.
