2019 Summer Residency at The Wallace Collection

CMF returns to The Wallace Collection for our 4th annual Summer Residency.

Monday 22nd  Friday 26th July 2019

Featuring six CMF Artists, 2019 sees the residency expanded beyond the popular free lunchtime recitals to include a children’s concert, a performance for dementia sufferers, and an evening concert centred around Schubert’s ‘Trout Quintet’ with guest performer, Sholto Kynoch.

Lunchtime Recitals (free)

The daily lunchtime recitals feature five of our newest 2018 CMF Artists: Ariana Kashefi (cello), Tom Millar (jazz piano), Toby Hughes (double bass), Helen Charlston (mezzo-soprano), and A4 Brass Quartet. Their programmes include music by Brahms, Debussy, Clara Schumann, and Jonathan Bates, a member of A4 Brass Quartet, who also offer a world premiere (the winning entry from their latest composition competition). See below for the full lunchtime recital schedule and programmes.

Children’s Concert with A4 Brass Quartet (free)

A4 Brass Quartet will also present an interactive concert for children and their families (Friday 26th July, 10.30am) during which the audience will have the chance to sing and play along in music ranging from film favourites to Rossini and Tchaikovsky.

‘Discover the Wallace’ with Tom Millar (free)

On Wednesday 24th July, from 2pm, jazz pianist Tom Millar presents 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 yesteryear, with songs such as ‘Tea for Two’, ‘Mack the Knife’, and ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’. The performance starts at 3pm, with tea and an opportunity to gently explore the Collection with specialist educators starting from 2pm. This is event is free, but booking is essential. Book here.

Schubert’s Trout (ticketed)

The residency will culminate in our first evening concert at the Collection, an evening of chamber music and song centred around the bubbling ‘Trout Quintet’. Joining to present Schubert’s ever-popular quintet, the Eblana String Trio (2017 CMF Artist) and double bassist Toby Hughes (2018 CMF Artist) collaborate with guest performer, the celebrated pianist Sholto Kynoch. The first half of the concert sees Kynoch join with mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston (2018 CMF Artist) to present a selection of fish-inspired songs, including Schubert’s Die Forelle [The Trout]. Adding carp, crayfish, and mermaids to this lyrical aquarium, Charlston’s programme also includes songs by Poulenc and Mahler. Tickets start at £25 and are able from the Wallace Collection’s website.
