  • Mendelssohn Piano Trio No. 1
  • Françaix Quartet for cor anglais and strings

The cor anglais is the star of the show in Jean Françaix’s effervescent Quartet for Cor Anglais and Strings – music that is at once delightfully witty, gorgeously lyrical and quietly reflective. Gliding effortlessly from quiet contemplation to the cheekiest of musical moods, it can’t fail to make you smile. For this colourful Centre Stage concert, it’s paired with the brilliant, cascading melodies of Mendelssohn’s popular first Piano Trio, a chamber music classic in its own right.

Please note that this is a change in programme from the previously advertised Bax, Pasculli and Ibert.
