Sydenham Arts presents An evening of Mozart & Mendelssohn by Ensemble SE26: Eleanor Meynell, Ellie Fagg, Tom Norris, Ruth Gibson, Hannah Sloane at Saturday 9th February, 7.30pm at St Bart’s church, 4 Westwood Hill SE26 6QR. Tickets: £16; concessions (students, over 60s, under 14s plus registered disabled & those on income support £5)
Following their successful taster concert last October, Sydenham Arts Chamber Music are thrilled to be back with an evening of beautiful music with local musicians. They will be performing Mozart’s piano quartet in G Minor and Mendelssohn’s piano trio in D minor.
Schumann said of Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio: “It is an exceedingly fine composition which will gladden our grandchildren and great-grandchildren for many years to come. It is a beautiful and highly emotional piece, and one of the greats of the piano trio repertoire.”
Mozart’s piano quartet in G minor has become one of the most familiar and well loved of his chamber works. It would have been intended to be played on a Viennese fortepiano, so the delicate timbre of the Broadwood piano at St Bart’s church is ideal.
With special thanks to the Lucille Graham Trust for their grant support. The concert is sponsored by CKB Estates and the Sydenham Society.
