The Sacconi Quartet return to Folkestone with their 12th Annual Chamber Music Festival from Friday 17 - Sunday 19 May 2019.

This year they are bringing some very special guests; including welcoming back the extraordinary pianist Tom Poster, who will join them for Korngold's sumptuous Piano Quintet. Eminent violist Philip Dukes will also join the Sacconis for a quintet, this time Beethoven's tempestuous 'Storm' Quintet Op.29. A hand-picked string orchestra from the Royal College of Music will be directed by the Sacconis in a thrilling concert including John Woolrich's haunting 'Ulysses Awakes' for Viola and Strings, and Bartok's Divertimento for Strings: one of the genre's greatest works. Other repertoire includes Mozart, Haydn, Grieg and Schubert.
