Formed in 1998 at the Royal Northern College of Music, the Elias String Quartet have quickly established themselves as one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of their generation.. They perform regularly in the UK and Western Europe, and recently returned from a successful tour of USA.
"There’s something intoxicating about the Elias String Quartet. For its Philadelphia Chamber Music Society visit, the Elias brought the Haydn quartet…to the point of instantly rendering every other performance in the listener’s memory as but a pale stab."

|The Amaryllis Consort is a vocal ensemble consisting of established soloists who have a particular affinity for the subtleties of ensemble singing with its special demands on technique and musicianship. Madrigals and secular music of the Renaissance remain the Consort's area of expertise. The ensemble celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2013 with an invitation concert in College Hall, Westminster Abbey, directed by the founder's son, Francis Brett.
"The Amaryllis Consort…all show an exceptionally high level of musicianship.... It was a demonstration of excellence in every respect..."
Saturday 21st March:
|Unanimously described as the leading pianist of his generation, John Lill’s career has taken him to over fifty countries, both as a recitalist and as a soloist with the world’s greatest orchestras. His rare talent emerged at an early age – he gave his first piano recital at the age of nine. At eighteen he performed Rachmaninov’s 3rd Piano Concerto under Sir Adrian Boult, followed by his much–acclaimed London debut playing Beethoven's ‘Emperor’ Piano Concerto at the Royal Festival Hall. His success was reflected in many prestigious international prizes and awards, and in 1970 he won the most coveted of these, the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition, further consolidating his already busy international concert schedule.|
