Sheffield Chamber Music Festival

Sheffield Chamber Music Festival
Sheffield's Music in the Round launches the 35th annual Chamber Music Festival on Friday 10 May 2019, with nine days of chamber music and more at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield and at Yellow Arch Studios with resident chamber music group Ensemble 360 at the heart of the festival, giving performances in the round in the Crucible Theatre. Visitors to the festival include pianist Stephen Hough as well as turntablist Shiva Feshareki, folk-trio Leveret and actor Henry Goodman.

The repertoire over the nine days is varied, with rarities such as Howells' Rhapsodic Quintet, contemporary works by Thomas Ades, Anna Meredith and Carmen Ho (the premiere of a festival commission), alongside Haydn, Elgar, Janacek, Britten, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Dvorak, Poulenc, Messiaen, Schubert, and Mozart

There will be a day devoted to string music from around the world, mixing Western classical repertoire with Indian classical Kamalbir Singh (Indian classical violin) and John Ball (tabla). And another day is devoted to the music of Johannes Brahms.

In addition to the main concerts, there is a series of short, informal rush hour concerts with tickets at £5 (free for the under 18s). First time visitors to the Crucible can purchase their first pair of tickets for £5, and under 35s are entitled to a  pair of £5 tickets.
