Mid-week and weekend chamber music events

posted on 21/09/18

Our annual series of mid-week and weekend chamber music events engage some of the finest ensembles of international repute, and this autumn features performances which will cover over 100 years of quartet development.

Carefully programmed to provide an illuminating sequence, in October The Endellion String Quartet perform in Lavenham, while in November The Albion Quartet join us in Taunton. In both locations you’ll enjoy the intimacy and intensity of a recital hall little bigger that a large drawing room, including quartets by Haydn, Beethoven, Dvorak, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Janáček.

Designed to stimulate the mind as well as enchanting the aesthetic sensibilities, pre-concert talks by a musicologist are also incorporated. Accommodation is included in the package price, as are most meals.

But don’t just take our word for it:


The Endellion String Quartet – over 100 years of extraordinary quartet development (15–17 October 2018)

'The Endellion Quartet matched our high expectations as one of the leading Quartets on the current musical scene - and individually they were such nice people!' - a previous Martin Randall Travel participant.



The Albion Quartet – from Haydn to Walton (23–25 November 2018)

'Outstanding concerts - the one by the Albion Quartet being totally "knock out" and wonderfully deeply felt.' - a previous Martin Randall Travel participant.
