The City Music Foundation (CMF) is returning to the Wallace Collection later this month when the current crop of CMF Artists will be giving free lunchtime concerts from Monday 22 July to Friday 26 July 2019.

The programme consists of Ariana Kashefi (cello) and Maksim Štšura (piano) in Debussy, Faure & Brahms (22/7/2019), jazz pianist Tom Millar (23/7/2019), Toby Hughes (double bass) and Daniel King Smith (piano) in Bottesini, Liebermann, Desenclos and Brahms' Cello sonata (24/7/2019), Helen Charlston (mezzo-soprano) and Adam Cigman-Mark (piano) in Alma Mahler, Clara Schumann and Alban Berg (25/7/2019), and A4 Brass Quartet in music by Jonathan Bates (a member of the quartet), Bach, Bartok and Grainger plus the world premiere of the winning entry from their latest composition competition (26/7/2019).

A4 Brass Quartet will also be presenting a children's concert on 26 July, and Tom Millar will be giving an intimate Discover the Wallace concert. Discover the Wallace is the Collection’s programme for people living with the early stages of dementia and their friends and families. Taking the audience on a trip down memory lane, Tom’s programme will include hits of yester-year; the performance starts at 3pm, with tea and an opportunity to gently explore the Collection with specialist educators starting from 2pm.

The residences ends with CMF's first evening concert at the Collection, when on Friday 26 July. the Eblana String Trio (CMF Artist 2017) and double bass player Toby Hughes will be joined by pianist Sholto Kynoch to perform Schubert's Trout Quintet, and Kynoch will join Helen Charlston for a selection of fish themed songs including of course Schubert's trout Die Forelle, plus sundry carp, crayfish  and mermaids by Poulenc, Mahler and others!
