Schubert - free tickets available
Tickets – many of them free to listeners – are available for a host of concerts in the Spirit of Schubert season, which begins next week. ‘Some of the events are fully subscribed,’ says interactive producer Graeme Kay. ‘But there are still plenty of tickets available. Here’s a preview of what’s on, and you can follow a link to a pdf document giving full details of the events and how to book.'
From the end of next week – 4.30pm on Friday 23rd March, The Spirit of Schubert arrives on Radio 3. With 200 hours of broadcasting and over a thousand performances we celebrate the man and the music. With concerts every day across the country, live music is a big part of the celebrations, and you can be at those performances with some of the world's leading performers in our Lunchtime Schubertiads.
There's the Signum Quartet at Holkham Hall in Norfolk, Imogen Cooper, Henk Neven and the Atos Trio at Champs Hill in West Sussex, the Gould Piano Trio are at Wyastone Leys in South Wales, Elisabeth Leonskaja and the Escher Quartet at Bath Assembly Rooms, Melvyn Tan at Finchcocks in Kent, Ben Johnson in Edinburgh and Francesco Piemontesi in Greenwich.
As well as the Lunchtime Schubertiads, Sean Rafferty and Suzy Klein take In Tune on the road, and you can be at some of those broadcasts too – Graham Johnson will be curating his selection of live Schubert song performance throughout the week with his hand picked selection of singers. There'll also be guests including the Doric Quartet and Imogen Cooper and friends performing the ‘Trout’. You can catch the In Tune Schubert Salons at Kings Place in London, Champs Hill in Sussex, and the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.
And if that wasn't enough, there are live concerts in the evenings. For the details of where all the concerts are happening, and how to book tickets, follow this link. [Please note that Champs Hill concerts are sold out and are not listed].
