Phantasie Trio in A minor – John Ireland
Piano Quintet in C minor – Ralph Vaughan Williams
Quintet for piano and strings in A minor Op 84 – Sir Edward Elgar

Pianist Mark Bebbington and Principals of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform a trio of English romantic gems.

Piano quintets by the two greatest British composers are presented together: Vaughan Williams’s early, rare foray into chamber music, evoking his ravishing song Silent Noon, alongside a late flowering of Elgar’s creative genius – one of the great chamber works of the 20th century.

John Ireland’s beautiful Phantasie Trio, full of drama and melody, sets the scene.

Thames Philharmonic Choir makes its annual visit to Cadogan Hall with a performance of Brahms’s German Requiem. Music Director Harry Bradford describes the Requiem as “a message of consolation and hope to the living, a piece like no other. Containing some of the most beautiful melodies ever composed, the piece is a tour de force for choir and orchestra alike. It will be paired with the Tragic Overture and the Alto Rhapsody, creating a fantastic celebration of one of history’s greatest musical minds.”
