Mozart and Dvorak evening

One of Britain’s leading chamber music groups, The Adderbury Ensemble, will be performing some of Mozart and Dvorak’s finest works in Buckingham.

The musicians will perform two pieces, one by Dvorak and the other by Mozart, both composed when the musicians were at their most successful, at the Radcliffe Centre at 7.30pm on Wednesday July 29.

The Ensemble will play a string quartet by Mozart dedicated to Haydn, one of Mozart’s Ten Celebrated String Quartets, as part of the University of Buckingham Summer Concerts and Lectures series.

The Ensemble will then be joined by the internationally acclaimed pianist Viv Mclean to perform Dvorak’s ever popular piano quintet, which has been described as ‘the most loveable portrait of Dvorak and his country (The Czech Republic) that the world possesses.’

Drinks and nibbles will be served in the interval. Tickets cost £7.50, concessions £5, are available on the door.

Directed by Martyn Jackson, The Adderbury Ensemble was formed in 1986 by some of Britain’s finest musicians.

It has grown from concerts organised in the beautiful village of Adderbury in north Oxfordshire to establishing a summer series of its own in the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford and the Music in Adderbury series.

The group has performed throughout Great Britain and Europe, establishing itself as one of the finest chamber groups in the country.

As well as chamber music The Adderbury Ensemble is flexible and can augment to play the symphonies and concertos of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Brahms.
