About this event

BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel made his concerto debut at the Proms earlier this season and now returns for a programme of chamber music.

He is joined by the Royal String Quartet for a concert that concludes with Richard Strauss’s extraordinary Metamorphosen – heard here in the string septet form in which Strauss originally drafted it, before he expanded it for an ensemble of 23 solo strings.

Alongside it is a rarely heard curiosity – Mahler’s contemplative Piano Quartet movement, the tantalising torso of a work never completed.

There will be no interval
