Friday 2: March Bela Hartman (piano) From Vienna to Warsaw

A selection of great piano works from the heart of Europe, from Mozart’s ethereal and melancholic Rondo in A Minor to Beethoven’s bucolic and groundbreaking Eroica Variations. Along the way are one of Schubert’s most idyllic Sonatas and a Schubert inspired work by the contemporary German composer Jörg Widmann suitably entitled “Idyll and Abyss”.


Friday 16 March: Glissando harp ensemble

Glissando are an exciting harp ensemble involving some of the top harpists across Sussex. Their repertoire is stylistically diverse – well known folk tunes and popular classics alongside pieces by prominent composers for harp. The ensemble features harpists from all walks of life, each with their own style, coming together to perform music which is both aurally and visually spectacular.


Friday 6 April: Broken Line

Broken Line consists of Adam Bushell (vibraphone/percussion), Adam Swayne (piano) and Helen Whitaker (flute). Together they create a huge array of sounds and textures, from sparse and delicate to the fully fledged wall-of-sound! Tonight’s programme includes the first performance of a specially written work by Jean Martin, Alvin Lucier’s beautiful trio Broken Line, and music by composers including Martin Butler, Helgi Invgarsson, Karlhienz Stockhausen and Dave Smith.


Friday 20 April: Illuminate

The Illuminate concert series presents new works by six emerging female composers – Angela Elizabeth Slater, Gemma Mcgregor, Blair Boyd, Lillie Harris, Sarah Westwood and Carol J Jones written for performers Késia Decoté (piano), Cassie Matthews (guitar), Sabina Virtosu (violin) and composer-performer Gemma Mcgregor (flute/shakuhachi). These new works will be performed alongside historical works by women composers including Morfydd Owen, Lily Boulanger, and Amy Beach. We are privileged to bring our Illuminate concert to St Luke’s music and wine series. There will be a short pre-concert talk at 7pm.
