Friday 8th June 2018: Brighton Chamber Ensemble

BCE080618

Join the Brighton Chamber Ensemble on 8 June for their performance of Mozart’s Kegelstatt trio, Stanford’s Fantasy No. 2 for Clarinet and String Quartet and Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet.

Brighton Chamber Ensemble was formed in 2011 by a group of friends who had originally met some years earlier as members of the Dartington Festival Orchestra. While they regularly played in other quartets and trios they were seeking an outlet for performing larger works of chamber music. With the addition of Steve Carroll-Turner on piano the ensemble now regularly performs in and around Brighton and elsewhere in East Sussex. Clarinettist Zoe Davies and violinist Rachel Ellis joined the ensemble in 2016. The addition of the clarinet has brought with it memorable performances of Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time” and the Mozart Clarinet Quintet as well as Prokofiev’s “Overture on Hebrew Themes”.
