Our next Lunchtime Concert on Thursday 22nd November sees a welcome return visit to the New Walk Museum by the Elysium Brass Ensemble. After their very successful concert in 2016 Leicester Concert-goer, wrote:
'The playing of these young musicians had a confidence and vivacity which was utterly winning and which made the hour slide by very quickly.'

These young musicians are really looking forward to returning to Leicester and we are sure to be entertained by their superb musicianship.

‘One thing is for sure, Clare Hammond has an instinct for constructing  a deeply satisfying programme, the features of which are delivered with succinct introductions that hit nail after nail on the head.’

‘…the clear fact is we really must hear more of Clare Hammond in Leicester, preferably in a full recital, and to judge from the ovation she received I am certainly not alone in wishing that.’

Leicester Concert-goer was bowled over by a wonderful Lunchtime Concert at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.

Robert Bottriell (piano) & Julian Bliss (clarinet)

We were pleased to welcome the clarinetist, Julian Bliss and his accompanist, Robert Bottriell to the New Walk Museum for what proved to be an outstanding Lunchtime Concert. They presented a programme of music by Debussy, Poulenc, Brahms and the 20th century Romanian composer, Tiberiu Olah. An appreciative audience was then entertained by their virtuoso encore, Czardas by Vittorio Monti.

LEICESTER INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL: 20TH - 22ND SEPTEMBER 2018

After three days of stunning music, the 2018 Leicester International Music Festival came to an end.

Our musicians came together from all around the world - a truly international line-up - and the Victorian Gallery was filled with delicious sounds. Lunchtime and evening concerts were warmly received by enthusiastic audiences.

LIMF’s patron, Thea Musgrave, was a 'featured composer' at this year's Leicester International Music Festival - 'A New World: Composers who moved to America' (20th-22nd September 2018).  

Thea flew to Leicester from across the Atlantic to be our very special guest at the Festival, with opportunities to hear her music at all five concerts.

You can now read Leicester Concert-goer’s comprehensive appreciation of the Festival here!
