Big Chamber Weekend - Hull 2017 - 4 of 4

Petroc Trelawny presents a concert from R3's Big Chamber Weekend at Hull City of Culture 2017. Chamber music and songs by Ireland, Gurney, Shostakovich and Vaughan Williams.

This week's Lunchtime Concerts were recorded at Radio 3's Big Chamber Weekend as part of Hull City of Culture 2017. The University of Hull's Middleton Hall was the venue, and performers included the Sacconi Quartet, tenor James Gilchrist and pianist Anna Tilbrook, who also curated the series.
