DANTE STRING QUARTET & NEW LONDON CHAMBER ENSEMBLE

Beethoven, Septet in E flat, Op.20 Martin Butler, Nonet: Rondes d’Automne Spohr, Nonet in F, Op.31 A concert of larger-scale chamber works including the new nonet by English composer Martin Butler. Beethoven’s Septet composed in 1799 was an immediate success, so much so that Beethoven came to resent its popularity later in life. Although revered in his lifetime, Louis Spohr’s music is rarely heard in concert today. His attractive early Romantic Nonet for wind quintet, violin, viola, cello and double bass brilliantly shows off the character of the individual instruments. The concert finishes at approximately 9.20pm "Playing of spellbinding atmosphere" New York Times Photograph by Anthony Upton
