International Chamber Music Series

The International Chamber Music Series brings together some of the most exciting musical collaborations the world over.

Back in a newly reopened Queen Elizabeth Hall, ICMS celebrates with a performance of Steve Reich’s Different Trains, 30 years on from its world premiere in the same venue in 1988. Further highlights include the return of percussionist Colin Currie with a contemporary blend of Stockhausen and Birtwistle; Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Marie-Luise Neunecker performing Ligeti’s Horn Trio as part of our weekend-long Ligeti in Wonderland festival; soprano Danielle de Niese reflecting on themes of life and death; and Benjamin Grosvenor heading up a performance of Schubert’s Trout Quintet.

Among the 2018/19 season highlights we count magnetic figures like Catalan viola virtuoso Jordi Savall and pianists Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich who bring the music of Stockhausen to life. Lawrence Power and Pavel Kolesnikov delight you with an all about Brahms programme; and quartets from around the world such as Nash Ensemble, Jerusalem Quartet and Artemis Quartet bring you vibrant and immersive musical evenings.

The joy here was the sense of communion between the visibly enthused performers and a beaming audience high on hypnotic percussion
