Upcoming Concerts

10/12/2022 Charleston Farmhouse East Sussex

A programme based around the late works of Beethoven and Britten, with readings by Lampedusa, Thomas Mann, and Beckett. Beethoven’s highly thought provoking and equally enigmatic Piano Sonata Op 111, and Britten’s Third String Quartet, one of his last works and written whilst he was staying in Venice, make up this evening’s emotionally charged programme of Music and Word.

Beethoven Piano Sonata Op 111
Benjamin Britten Third String Quartet
The Sacconi String Quartet
Dame Harriet Walter has agreed to join us and to be our reader for this evening's performance.
This programme of late works by Beethoven and Britten with readings in between the movements will not fail to move and inspire with some of the greatest music written by these two great Composers. A very special treat to have Dame Harriet Walter to be our reader for this evening's concert. A real honour!
