• Sacconi Chamber Music Festival • 17-19 May 2019 • Folkestone •

The Sacconi Quartet return to Folkestone with their 12th Annual Chamber Music Festival. This year they are bringing some very special guests; including welcoming back the extraordinary pianist Tom Poster, who will join them for Korngold's sumptuous Piano Quintet. Eminent violist Philip Dukes will also join the Sacconis for a quintet, this time Beethoven's tempestuous 'Storm' Quintet Op.29. A hand-picked string orchestra from the Royal College of Music will be directed by the Sacconis in a thrilling concert including John Woolrich's haunting 'Ulysses Awakes' for Viola and Strings, and Bartok's Divertimento for Strings: one of the genre's greatest works. Other repertoire includes Mozart, Haydn, Grieg and Schubert.
