and

These pieces have featured in our pre-opera programme, Beyond The Stage, as performed for Garsington Opera during their 2019 season.

We can also offer them as part of a recital or function programme.
 

Beyond The Stage

Pre Opera Performances for Opera Festivals

This programme of light classics is designed to serenade guests as they arrive for a country house opera performance.  It can last from 20 to 50 minutes as required and provides a very pleasant, musical backdrop for people to sip their champagne and set out picnics.  Audiences are at leisure to listen formally, sitting near the performers, or informally using the freedom to wander the grounds or chat at tables.

We can adapt the number of players to suit the size and budget of each individual venue.

Repertoire List

Wonderful music for chamber ensemble

Drawn from the music of the great composers, our repertoire features music from the traditions created by Mozart and Beethoven, and also includes works by more modern masters. These wonderful pieces with their lyrical melodies and glorious harmonies, would grace any concert hall...lending a flavour of sophistication and a sense of drama to any occasion.

 

This is just a sample of the music we can offer you.  With a little notice, it might be possible to perform exactly the piece of music you have in mind.
