Corbridge Chamber Music Festival: Northumberland

St Andrew’s Church, Corbridge Market Place, Corbridge, Northumberland, England

Our festival finale opens with one of Boccherini’s many string quintets (there are over a hundred!), a particularly vocal example which draws upon influences as diverse as Italian Opera and Spanish Fandango. We then draw together some of the threads of the 2024 Corbridge Festival, with Pierrot’s escapades graphically depicted by Thea Musgrave, and a final reminder of JP Joffre’s astonishing bandoneon playing in that classic of ‘Nuevo Tango’, Piazzolla’s ‘Libertango’. ‘I can’t tell you how moved I am by it, and powerfully gripped’ wrote Clara Schumann of Brahms’ Piano Quintet Op.34. Widely regarded as the jewel in the crown of Brahms’ chamber works, what better way to bring the 2024 Corbridge Chamber Music Festival to a rousing end?
