Simon Callaghan at the Highgate International Chamber Music Festival

Simon Callaghan will be part of a stellar line-up at next month’s Highgate International Chamber Music Festival.

Across four concerts, Simon will perform in various trios, a quintet, a sextet and a nonet, in a broad range of music by Beethoven, Ludwig, Dohnányi, Poulenc and Coleridge-Taylor.

During the week, Simon will share the stage with a host of leading chamber musicians, including Natalie Klouda and Ashok Klouda who, with Irina Botan, co-direct the festival.

The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Beethoven 249’ and the week is focused on celebrating Beethoven and his works “to mark this most notable anniversary”.

Simon will be performing three of Beethoven’s works during his stint at the Festival.  In his first concert, on Tuesday 26th November at St Michael’s Church, Highgate, he will play in the Gassenhauer Trio (Trio in B flat, op. 11), as well as Ernő Dohnányi’s Sextet in C, op. 37, and David Ludwig’s 3 Yiddish Dances for piano trio.

On Friday 29th November, Simon will play in three concerts at St Anne’s Church, Highgate. For the early evening concert, at 6.15pm, he will perform Beethoven’s Quintet for piano and winds in E flat, op. 16, with Nicholas Daniel, Peter Sparks, Amy Harman and James Pillai.

The main evening concert, at 7.30pm, will feature Simon in Poulenc’s Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano, as well as Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Nonet in F minor, op. 2, scored for wind quartet (with horn), string quartet and piano.

Then, at 10pm that evening, the ‘Concert by Candlelight’ will be given by Ben Gilmore, Ashok Klouda and Simon, performing Beethoven’s ‘Archduke’ Trio (Piano Trio in B flat, op. 97).
