Solem Quartet under a Spotlight

The Solem Quartet looks forward to performing as part of Spotlight Chamber Concerts in December at St John’s Church, Waterloo.

Spotlight Chamber Concerts is jointly presented by Bandstand Chamber Festival and St John’s Waterloo, and will take place from 28th November to 19th December.

The Solem Quartet’s concert is on Friday 11th December at 6.30pm, and tickets can be purchased here.

The concert series will feature a world-class line-up of soloists and chamber musicians which also includes Steven Isserlis, Angela Hewitt, Roderick Williams and Susie Allan. Clarinettist Anthony Friend, who is the founder and director of the series, will also give a performance alongside the Maxwell Quartet.

Anthony Friend says:

“I am delighted to have been able to create the Spotlight Chamber Concerts as an opportunity for audiences to hear great chamber music and solo recitals in a safe and atmospheric environment.

The difficulties faced by these world-leading artists have been enormous, but Spotlight Chamber Concerts offers these elite performers the chance to connect with audiences once again on an intimate level.

This has been made possible thanks to the extraordinary generosity of a few individuals and charities, the support of St John’s Waterloo, and the belief we all share in the value of live music.”

Spotlight Chamber Concerts follows on from the success of the recent Bandstand Chamber Festival, also set up by Anthony Friend, which took place in Battersea Park’s Victorian bandstand in September. The concerts will feature dramatic lighting centred on the performers to create a focused and immersive experience, and will take place in a safe socially-distanced environment.

The Solem Quartet’s programme pairs Thomas Adès’s 2010 string quartet The Four Quarters with one of Beethoven’s ‘Late Quartets’, the Quartet in B flat major, op. 130.

Tickets must be pre-booked, and can be found on this page.
