From Monday 22 – Friday 26 July 2019, City Music Foundation returns to The Wallace Collection for its 4th annual summer residency.
This year’s residency features six CMF artists in eight events, expanding beyond the popular free lunchtime recitals to include a children’s concert, a performance for dementia sufferers, and an evening concert.
The daily lunchtime recitals feature five of CMF’s newest artists: Ariana Kashefi (cello), Tom Millar (jazz piano), Toby Hughes (double bass), Helen Charlston (mezzo-soprano), and A4 Brass Quartet. Their programmes include music by Brahms, Debussy, Alma Mahler, Alban Berg, and Jonathan Bates – a member of A4 Brass Quartet, who will also perform a world premiere.
A4 Brass Quartet will also present an interactive concert for children and families (Friday 26 July, 10.30am) while jazz pianist Tom Millar presents an intimate ‘Discover the Wallace’ concert (Wednesday 24 July), for people living within the early stages of dementia. The performance starts at 3pm, with tea and an opportunity to explore the collection with specialist educators from 2pm.
Concluding the residency will be the CMF’s first evening concert at the Collection, an evening of chamber music and song centred around Schubert’s ‘Trout Quintet,’ performed by the Eblana String Trio (2017 CMF Artist), Toby Hughes (2018 CMF Artist), Helen Charlston (2018 CMF Artist) and guest performer pianist Sholto Kynoch.
