BBC Proms Chamber Music returns every Monday lunchtime for its sixth year at Cadogan Hall.

The series picks up the season's strands and celebrations and comprises a wide range of music from Renaissance polyphony (23 August) to the world premiere of the BBC/RPS co-commissioned String Quartet No. 6 by Jouni Kaipainen (26 July).

Highlights include a Schubert and Schumann song recital from Mark Padmore and Imogen Cooper (19 July), a theatrical concert evoking the spirit of 17th-century Venice from the Le Poème Harmonique and Vincent Dumestre (6 September) and a recital featuring two BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, soprano Malin Christensson and baritone Henk Neven, in songs by Brahms, Berg and Wolf (2 August).

There are also chances to hear major soloists, including violinist Julia Fischer (16 August) and pianist Lars Vogt (30 August), in a more intimate setting than in their appearances at the Royal Albert Hall this season.
