Artistic Director introduces our Spring 2015 Sheffield Season
WELCOME TO OUR 2015 SPRING SEASON
We are delighted to present a Spring series packed with wonderful concerts and events for music-lovers of all ages.
Booking opens on Sat 1 November 2014, and you can read the brochure here.
The programme reflects the great range of music we embrace, from the small, intensely intimate works that afford a deeply profound listening experience in the Crucible Theatre Studio, to the exuberant and dynamic pieces that feature in programmes for all the family when we take over the Crucible’s main stage for the whole day on 24th January, including a ‘Pay What You Want’ concert to which we encourage you to bring as many friends and family members as you like.
We are thrilled that we will be joined for recitals by internationally renowned pianist Melvyn Tan, La Serenissima – with the beautiful surroundings of St Marie’s Cathedral to complement their glorious Venetian Baroque programme – and the Benyounes Quartet, who are participating in our Exploring Haydn festival. The events packed into this weekend offer a great platform for Ensemble 360 and guest speakers to illustrate the many and varied reasons why Haydn is often considered to have been the most progressive and influential composer of all.
With this Spring series, we reach the final concerts of both Tim Horton’s and the Elias String Quartet’s two wonderful complete cycles of Beethoven’s piano sonatas and string quartets. But please do not despair – we have an exciting ‘plan of succession’ in place with concerts that will launch a compelling new series commencing in the Autumn!
