    26 August 11:00 - 14:00
  • Chamber music by Schumann, Brahms & Mendelssohn

    Three of today’s most admired musicians – each an international soloist in his own right, and with a long history of accomplished chamber performances together – bring the 2017 Queen’s Hall concerts to a touchingly Romantic close.

    US violinist Joshua Bell makes the third of his three International Festival appearances, joined by British cellist Steven Isserlis – acclaimed for his exceptional two-concert survey of Beethoven’s cello music at the 2016 International Festival – and powerful Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon.

    They perform a quartet of lyrical works, all written within a few years of each other – from delicate, song-like Romances by Robert and Clara Schumann, to the turbulent drama of Mendelssohn’s Second Piano Trio and the almost symphonic sweep of Brahms’s passionate Piano Trio No 1.
