Symphonia Academica

Peter Bussereau’s ensemble returns with another inventive programme of music for chamber ensemble. They will be joined by pianist Clare Hammond to play Mozart’s K466 and the Larghetto from Chopin’s lyrical 1st Piano Concerto, repertoire that she has prepared for her appearance in Alan Bennett’s new film Lady in the Van. There will also be a world première from Alex Woolf and music by John McCabe, our one time Vice-president who died last year.
