Concert: Russian Music for Strings with the London Chamber Collective

The London Chamber Collective

The London Chamber Collective is an ensemble of dedicated and energetic chamber musicians who play together in many different formations, allowing them to explore great masterpieces across the chamber music genre, and programme varied and exciting concerts. The London Chamber Collective is made up of internationally acclaimed performers, who came together in 2013 after graduating from many of the top conservatoires in the world, including the Julliard, the Royal College and Royal Academy of Music, and the Paris Conservatoire.

The flexibility of the LCC gives them the opportunity to put on concerts that look at classical music from different angles, through various mediums such as a Piano Quartet followed by a String Sextet. The group believe in including the audience in their thoughts on the music and composers, and often give spoken introductions to their performances. Exploring relationships between, for example, early and late works of one composer, or between a particular composer and their contemporaries is something that interests the LCC in particular, and something they believe can really bring concerts to life.

The 2014 season sees the opening of the London Chamber Collective’s new festival, Sevenoaks International Chamber Music ( http://www.sevenoaksmusicfestival.co.uk/ ), where they will be ensemble in residence. Other highlights include recitals of works by Mozart and Beethoven at St-Martin-in-the-Fields (June) and Kings Place (September).
