The programme for The Music Makers’ next concert, on Tuesday 21st July (the 9th of the series) could be the most impressive yet in terms of both musical works and musicianship.
A great work of historic chamber music, Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quintet (for piano and string quartet, composed in 1864) is the main feature of a programme including a Haydn string quartet and a set of songs by Gustav Mahler.
The Music Makers’ concerts offer an opportunity to hear a wide range of music, usually involving the modern grand piano at Crediton Congregational Church – and ranging from historic classical to jazz and more popular items . . . in friendly surroundings and at a moderately friendly price!
Roger Stephenson, familiar to the Music Makers’ audience, is the pianist for the concert, and will be joined by five excellent musicians from further afield with whom Roger has worked for some time: Sarah Greinig (violin), Simon Routh (violin), Adrian Lock (viola) and Ruth Lock (cello), Alison Routh (soprano). The quartet players form the Clayhanger String Quartet.
As ever, delicious food, wine and soft drinks will be available from 6.45pm – with music beginning at 7.30pm. Admission is £7 (Under 16s free). Those new to chamber music, or accompanied by children, are welcome to come for just part of the concert if preferred.
For your diary, there will be a series of Lunchtime Recitals (as last year) starting on Tues 11th August, plus a Bank Holiday Sunday (30th August) concert performed by a remarkable and entertaining 10-piece wind group West Wind. The dates of these and other 2015 concerts can be found in leaflets at Crediton Library.
