Vocal consort The Gesualdo Six
Gesualdo Six presents online chamber festival4:41, 21st October 2020
London Sound Gallery, a chamber music festival curated by The Gesualdo Six to celebrate some of the UK’s finest young musicians, launches online this Sunday 25 October.
The festival comprises six performances given by Fieri Consort, Helen Charlston, Ensemble Augelletti, Matilda Lloyd, The Hermes Experiment and The Gesualdo Six. Performances were filmed live at the Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair, London, in front of a small audience.
Themes of the inaugural festival include reconnection, new beginnings and reconciliation. As such, The Gesualdo Six collaborates with each artist as part of their programme.
The festival was designed to raise money for artists, helping to recover some of their Covid-19 losses and provide a focal point for new programming and performance.
The London Sound Gallery online series will be broadcast in 4K on Sundays at 5pm from 25 October to 29 November. Ticket holders will be able to watch live and/or on demand from the date of broadcast until 1 January 2021.
