This year's Winchester Chamber Music Festival takes place from 25 to 28 April 2013, with concerts taking place at the Discovery Centre and at St. Lawrence's Church in Winchester. The festival was founded in 2008 and is organised by the London Bridge Ensemble - Daniel Tong (piano), Laura Samuel (violin), Tom Dunn (viola), Kate Gould (cello). (Tong and Gould are the festival's artistic directors). This year the ensemble are joined by guests Esther Hoppe (violin), Krusztof Chorzelski (viola/violin) and Richard Lester (cello).  The programme has a thread of Shostakovich running through it with the Piano Quintet in G minor, Sonata for Cello and Piano in D minor and Piano Trio in E minor, plus an open rehearsal of the quintet. Other composers featured included Mozart (including a late night performance of his String Quintet in G minor, K516), Haydn, Debussy, Ravel and Borodin. The festival concludes with a performance of Tchaikovsky's Souvenirs de Florence.
