2015 - 16  SEASON


   I'm delighted to welcome you to the Weymouth Lunchtime Chamber Concerts for 2015-16.  We have a superbly varied and contrasting programme this year, including a song recital from Weymouth's own soprano Abbi Temple, an organ recital by an exciting Swiss soloist, a gifted young flautist and oboist from closer to home, and violin and cello recitals by some very special visitors. Alongside renowned artists of long standing there are several appearances by outstanding young musicians at the beginning of their careers, seasoned with a generous sprinkling of performers with Dorset roots. 

   We begin with a piano recital by one of the world's leading harpsichordists, Virginia Black, who has recently returned to her roots as a pianist and is previewing her forthcoming London recital for us here in Weymouth.  Music-making with friends has always been at the heart of the ethos of the Weymouth Lunchtime Chamber Concerts, and the 2015-16 season concludes with a return visit from my Wessex Piano Quartet.  It is always a joy to bring these colleagues to Weymouth and in our summer concert we will play contrasting and delicious works by Mozart and Brahms.
