Postponed Performances

Spring Bank Arts Coffee Concerts 2020 Series

Dear all,

 

 

We're pleased to announce a rescheduling of the postponed Coffee Concert from May 2020.

 

In order to continue the postponed 2020 series, Spring Bank Arts are offering the opportunity for those who purchased 2020 season tickets or an individual ticket for the May concert the chance to hear these wonderful performers for FREE. Remaining tickets will be on sale for £15 once these places have been taken. Please contact Spring Bank Arts to book Mon-Fri 9:30-12:30 01663 308202. Coffee & Cake included.

 

We're delighted to welcome Sergio Castelló López, the principal clarinettist with the Hallé Orchestra who will be joined by his colleagues Peter Liang, Steven Proctor (violins), Christine Anderson (viola) and Paul Grennan (cello) to perform Brahms' Clarinet Quintet. Having stopped composing in his mid-fifties, Brahms was so inspired by the clarinet playing of Richard Mühlfield that he composed four of his last works for this instrument. The timbre of the clarinet reflects the introspective and melancholic mood of the music. It is beautiful, searching, and full of longing.

 

Alongside this wonderful quintet, the string quartet will play a beautiful selection of Nordic folk music arrangements, and Sergio will play Stravinsky's three solo pieces for clarinet which bring a folk, jazz and rag-time feel to the concert.

 

 

We endeavour to keep you updated on any future events via posters at Spring Bank Arts centre, via email, on our Facebook page and website.

 

We very much hope to be able to build audience confidence to return to a safe space for a live music event. The performers are of course desperate to be back and would welcome your support.
