Bromsgrove Concerts, the well-respected regional concert platform, is once again rolling out the red carpet to welcome internationally renowned guest artists who will be bringing an enterprising selection of styles and periods to suit all musical tastes. Concerts take place at the town’s purpose-built Arts Centre, Artrix, from September 2018 until April 2019.

A highly-anticipated season of mixed programmes this year, once again attracting attention for the calibre of artists, features prize-winners from some of the most prestigious performing competitions, including one of the foremost British wind quintets of their generation and double prize-winners at the Carl Nielsen International Chamber Music Competition in Denmark – the Atéa Wind Quintet, as well as powerhouse ensembles including the Piatti Quartet, joint winners of the 2nd prize Wigmore Hall International Competition in 2015, the Zelkova Quartet, who won the St Martin’s Chamber Music competition, and the Lawson Piano Trio, who have been selected as a featured artist by, amongst others, the Park Lane Group, Concordia Foundation and Cavatina Chamber Music Trust.

Those artists who, as mentors, have links to outstanding music institutions in the region, such as Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the CBSO, include the Atéa Wind Quintet and the gifted young Eblana String Trio - violin, viola and cello - who will be showcasing lyrical British works. The Trio won all the major chamber music prizes during their time at the Royal Northern College of Music and have recently enjoyed a debut performance at London’s Wigmore Hall. The 2017 winner of the Bromsgrove International Young Musicians' Competition; Australian violinist Emily Sun, will perform to open the season in the newly refurbished Routh Hall at Bromsgrove School, accompanied by pianist and Concordia Foundation, Park Lane Group and Samling artist, Gamal Khamis.

Familiar faces who are returning to Bromsgrove Concerts this season include Krysia Osostowicz (violin) and Stephen Stirling (horn), with pianist Michael Dussek joining them to perform as Endymion ensemble, and Robert Plane (clarinet) who will be performing with the Gould Piano Trio in a thrilling arrangement of Rimsky-Korsakov’s ever-popular work ‘Scheherazade’.

In keeping with Bromsgrove Concerts’ ethos of providing varied and imaginative programmes and to regularly introduce audiences to unfamiliar contemporary pieces, the new season features works by some of Britain’s most enterprising contemporary composers including David Matthews, Judith Weir, Joseph Phibbs, Huw Watkins, Mike Mower and Gillian Whitehead, giving an unprecedented opportunity to hear these composers outside of the major conurbations.

“Bromsgrove Concerts continues to be a showcase for the best chamber music on offer in the UK”, said Chairman, Alastair Moseley. “This year’s programme has a fantastic blend of wind, string and piano ensembles featuring some of the best emerging and established talent from the UK’s concert platforms. We are also including the newly opened Routh Hall as a venue which, like Artrix, our home base, is blessed with a comfortable auditorium and a generous acoustic. I would urge our audiences to take advantage of our discounted ticket offer and attend several performances to experience the range and quality of the music that we have programmed this year.”
