The Sacconi Quartet returned to Folkestone with their 12th Annual Chamber Music Festival from Friday 17 - Sunday 19 May 2019.
This year they brought some very special guests; including welcoming back the extraordinary pianist Tom Poster, who joined them for Korngold's sumptuous Piano Quintet.
Eminent violist Philip Dukes also joined 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 was 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 included Mozart, Haydn, Grieg and Schubert.
The Sacconi Quartet will return to Folkestone with their 13th Annual Chamber Music Festival in May 2020. Further details to follow in the New Year.
