Event Details

City Music Foundation returns to The Wallace Collection for our 4th annual Summer Residency (22nd – 26th July). 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 centered around Schubert’s ‘Trout Quintet’ with guest performer Sholto Kynoch.

Joining to perform 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 dolphins, crayfish, and a few singing fishermen to this lyrical aquarium, Charlston’s programme also includes songs by Mahler, Poulenc & Faure. Tickets start at £25 and are able from the Wallace Collection’s website.
