This weekend is one of the cultural highlights of the year at Dillington House, with live performances by internationally renowned musicians. We will hear four concerts by the Piatti Quartet who will join with the cellist Ella Rundle for what promises to be a memorable occasion, a performance of Schubert’s wonderful Quintet in C major. Over the weekend our featured composer will be Beethoven, in recognition of his 250th anniversary. The other composers will include Haydn, Purcell, Janáček and Borodin. Musicologist Terry Barfoot will provide the context for the performances with a series of illustrated lectures, and there will be full programme notes.
