Chamber Series: Poulenc Sextet

When you put woodwind players together with a pianist, something hilarious has a habit of happening. We don’t know why: it just does, and whether it’s the Gallic wit of Poulenc’s delicious Sextet or Rimsky-Korsakov’s very Russian sense of the absurd, this is just pure tuneful fun from first note…

Chamber Series: Romantic Piano Quartets

It’s the musical equivalent of splitting the atom – the way just four players can unlock some of the most powerful emotions you’ll ever feel in a concert hall. Brahms poured his darkest feelings into his C minor Piano Quartet; the result is a musical tragedy as stirring as Shakespeare.…

Chamber Series: French Songs with Karen Cargill

Delicious decadence… at the start of the 20th century, Paris was the world’s capital of art, luxury and l’amour. This exquisite recital from Scotland’s international star mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill dives deep into that sensuous, seductive world – from the steamy cabaret songs of Claude Debussy to the moonlit romance of…

Chamber Series: Beethoven Revolution - Steven Osborne Recital

Ask Steven Osborne which music he’d choose above all others, and he replies ‘Beethoven, for the enormous emotional range, the intellectual engagement, the earthiness, the humour, and the genius way of dealing with musical structure.’ So even though there’s practically nothing that this great Scottish pianist can’t play, the prospect…

Chamber Series: Beethoven Revolution - Beethoven & Strauss Duos

Each player in the RSNO is a star in their own right, and the nice thing about chamber music is that it allows them to step out of the orchestra and really shine in the music they love best. For the RSNO’s Belarusian Principal Cello Aleksei Kiseliov, that means teaming…

Chamber Series: Beethoven Revolution - Beethoven Septet

Take Beethoven at his happiest, give him seven virtuoso musicians, throw in a couple of pop tunes and the result is irresistible. But if Beethoven’s Septet is pure musical sunshine, this fantastic miniature version of Richard Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel is sheer knockabout farce – brilliantly played. For today’s RSNO players,…
