Petworth Festival welcomes one of the world’s leading exponents of music for piano and strings. Regularly giving up to 50 concerts a year, the ensemble has performed in over 40 different countries, has over 80 commissions to its name, has recorded over 30 critically acclaimed CDs and is familiar to British audiences through regular broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. In 1998 the Ensemble was recognised by the Royal Philharmonic Society when it won the coveted Best Chamber Ensemble Award, for which it was shortlisted again in 2010.
They perform two of the cornerstones of the piano quartet repertoire together with the engaging and accessible Quartet by Huw Watkins which they will introduce prior to performing.
Huw Watkins - Piano Quartet (2012)
Schumann - Piano Quartet Op.47
Fauré - Piano Quartet No.1 in C minor
Generously supported by Christopher & Joan Hampson and Reseals Violins
