The first of our series of Spring concerts at the Chapel…
ABERGAVENNY CHAMBER MUSIC – THE BUCKNALL TRIO
Friday 19th January 7.30pm
Nicholas Bucknall (clarinet) Francis Bucknall (cello) David Elwin (piano)
A veritable feast of music for all tastes. Performed in a hall almost perfect for chamber music.
This concert will prove to be the best yet in respect of programme and artists. Starting with a Hayden Piano Sonata, it will be followed by Beethoven’s delightful upbeat Trio Opus 11 for clarinet, cello and piano. In the second half, Mansel Thomas who lived locally is featured with a piece for cello and piano and as a grand finale, Brahms’ epic Trio for clarinet, cello and piano. Read more on our events page.
Tickets on sale now £12 available at both venues and online. Why not make an evening of it and book a Pre-Concert Supper at the Chapel Kitchen.
