Sacconi Chamber Music Festival 2019
St Eanswythe’s Church, Folkestone
This year sees the Sacconi Quartet return to Folkestone for their twelfth Chamber Music Festival. Joining them are some very special guests, including the extraordinary pianist Tom Poster in Korngold’s sumptuous Piano Quintet and the eminent violist Philip Dukes in Beethoven’s tempestuous ‘Storm’ Quintet, Op. 29. The Sacconi will also direct a hand-picked string orchestra from the Royal College of Music in a thrilling concert, including John Woolrich’s haunting Ulysses Awakes, for viola and strings, andBartók’s Divertimento for Strings– one of the greatest essays in the genre. Other repertoire includes works by Mozart, Haydn, Grieg, and Schubert.
