Guildhall School of Music's Chamber Music Festival

Guildhall School of Music and Drama - Chamber Music Festival

The Guildhall School of Music and Drama's Chamber Music Festival is taking place from 8 to 10 July 2022 across a variety of venues at the Guildhall School as well as the Charterhouse Chapel. There will be performances from some of the Guildhall School's most accomplished chamber groups, student-professor collaborations featuring major performers from the chamber music faculty as well as distinguished guests.

The festival's opening performance is intriguing, the Coalitio Quartet joins forces with Levon Chilingirian for a lecture-recital, What is Functional Analysis?, looking at the musical analysis system propounded by Hans Keller. The opening concert features students and professors in music by Malcolm Arnold, Shostakovich, Coleridge Taylor and Dvorak. At Charterhouse Chapel on the Saturday, a variety of student ensembles bring together music by Britten, including his divertimenti and String Quartet No. 2, and Purcell. The evening concert features guest ensembles and chamber music fellows, the Mithras Trio, the Consone Quartet and the Fibonacci Quartet in music by Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn and Boccherini. Sunday includes masterclasses, music by Martinu, Debussy, Silvestrov, Kapustin, Tailleferre, Beethoven and Prokofiev, and a closing concert that features music by Mozart, Brahms, Roussel and Bridge.
