Fourfortytwo is taking over The Forge in Camden this week! Well, on Wednesday and Sunday at least.
On Wednesday night, come along to hear the continuation of the Phoenix Piano Trio’s Beyond Beethoven series – including Beethoven’s ‘Ghost Trio’ and a new companion commission to accompany it by Philip Venables, called Klaviertrio im Geiste.
You can also catch Sholto, Marie and Jonny from the Phoenix Piano Trio on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune on Friday afternoon at about 4.45pm, performing excerpts from this concert and talking about their Beyond Beethoven project. They’ll be repeating the programme at Oxford’s Holywell Music Room on Saturday evening.
On Sunday evening, we’re back again at The Forge for the New London Chamber Ensemble’s performance with guest pianist Michael Dussek. Their concert ‘Piano and Winds Converge at Forge’ will feature a revised sextet by Julian Philips, written specially for the quintet, and also brand new arrangements of Mozart miniatures by Philip Cashian and Julian Philips, alongside Mozart’s popular Quintet for piano and Winds and Poulenc’s lively Sextet. Should be a colourful evening! There’s also an interval talk by Catherine Burd, the architect who designed the Forge venue. Tickets available here.
See you there!
