FRIDAY 27th SEPTEMBER 7.00pm : THE FITZWILLIAM AT HAY 2019

 THE FITZWILLIAM STRING QUARTET WITH PIANIST ANNA TILBROOK

The Fitzwilliam String Quartet is now one of the longest established string quartets in the world: founded in 1968 by four Cambridge undergraduates, the group quickly achieved international recognition as a result of its members’ personal friendship with Shostakovich and their subsequent championing of his string quartets following his death.

Anna Tilbrook is one of Britain’s most exciting pianists, with a considerable reputation in song recitals and chamber music. She made her debut at the Wigmore Hall in 1999 and has since become a regular performer at Europe’s major concert halls and festivals, as well as coaching regularly for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden. Anna has collaborated with many leading singers and instrumentalists and is also in demand as a repetiteur, continuo player and vocal coach, working for companies including the Royal Opera, Royal Ballet, Aldeburgh Festival and the LSO and conductors including Sir Charles Mackerras, Vasily Petrenko, Harry Christophers and Edward Gardner.

This evening they present a programme of works by Schubert; Roderick Williams; Schumann and Elgar.

Tickets £15.00 available at Richard Booth’s Bookshop on behalf of The Black Mountains Chamber Music Trust.

 Tickets may be purchased in person from Richard Booths Bookshop, Lion Street, Hay, online at www.boothsbooks.co.uk, by ‘phone 01497 820322 or on the door, subject to availability.
