Alleyn's International Concert Series 2017
The Frith Quartet, Thursday 9th March, 7.30 p.m.
Robert Heard - violin, Louise Williams - viola, Richard Jenkins - 'cello, Ben Frith - piano
The evening will begin with a performance of one of the first masterpieces of the genre, Mozart's piano quartet No.1 in G minor K478, the evening will continue with R. Strauss' dramatic piano quartet in C minor op 13. The concert will conclude with Schumann's piano quartet in E flat major op 47 which is by terms exhilarating and mysterious. This concert demonstrating the power and intensity of the piano quartet form in the company of consumate performers should not be missed.
The Swingle Singers, Monday, June 19th, 7.30 p.m.
For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy® winners since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognised as masters of their craft.
"Stunning reinventions of songs by the likes of John Martyn, Elbow and Mumford & Sons, with subtle beatboxing and audacious harmonies... superhero singing to truly raise goosebumps." – The Guardian
