Chamber Classics Unwrapped

Travel to Kings Place

Curated Weeks

Each week, Kings Place is given over to one artist, group or organisation who are invited to present within the spaces, keeping our programme diverse and imaginative. Performers and curators appear by invitation of Kings Place and have carte blanche over the artistic content of their week.
See a list of some of our curators, past and present. .

Below is a list of all our upcoming Curated Weeks.

Chamber Classics Unwrapped ( Wed 15th Jan - Sat 13th Dec 2014)




'Having ‘unwrapped’ single composers through their chamber music, we thought we would celebrate five years of music-making by turning to the art form itself, and asking you, our audience, what you wanted to hear. Together with BBC Music Magazine, we launched an online vote to find the Top 50 most loved pieces of chamber music in the repertoire, and these will form the core of our new Chamber Classics Unwrapped series.'

'Another special feature of our offering at Kings Place has been to give musicians the freedom to curate their own concerts, and I'm delighted to say that those invited to take part in this series have come up with some wonderfully imaginative programmes.' Peter Millican, CEO Kings Place

RE:naissance ( Thu 1st May - Sat 3rd May 2014)

It's always a big year for Shakespeare. 2014 is the biggest yet.

RE:naissance 2014 celebrates the extraordinary Man and that extraordinary Time with some of the most extraordinary performers and artists of our time.

Alchemy, espionage, art and artists that knew no bounds, the world on a stage, great reckonings in little rooms. Some of the myriad characteristics of the English Renaissance. Some of the qualities RE:naissance 2014 will be bringing to Kings Place.

From premieres by Errollyn Wallen, James Francis Brown and Stephen Deazley, to romping tavern nights with some of the UK's most versatile and virtuoso musicians. From spell-binding, genre-transcending tales of passion and intrigue, to spirit-summoning rituals with the Devil's own music calling the tune. From works that re-define the concert-going and concert-giving experience, to performances that will ascend the brightest heaven of invention.

We caught up with Matthew and Errollyn in Hall One for a chat and a spot of live music...

Songlines Encounters Festival 2014 ( Thu 5th Jun - Sat 7th Jun 2014)

Like a string of pearls, Songlines Encounters 2014 hangs on a thread of glorious female vocalists: Çiğdem Aslan brings gorgeous songs from Asia Minor, Luzmira Zerpa brings Venezuelan flamboyance, Dobet Gnahoré brings raw energy from Ivory Coast, and Oana Catalina Chiţu brings the lyrical Romanian repertoire of Maria Tanase to life. Beside them, there is the electrifying violin of Anna Phoebe and virtuoso instrumentals from Kayhan Kalhor. Sublime voices and, as ever, thrilling instrumental encounters with Persian kamancheh, Romanian cimbalom and its Persian brother the santur. – Simon Broughton (Songlines Editor-in-Chief)

Simon Broughton spoke to Turkish Kurdish vocalist Çiğdem Aslan and fiery violinist Anna Phoebe about what they'll be bringing to the Festival...

Dvorák Explored ( Thu 27th Nov - Sat 29th Nov 2014)

Dvořák was one of the most natural melodists in musical history and almost every note of his music is imbued with the characteristic folk song and dance rhythms of his native country.

His works often shine with joy as well as containing great passion and intensity, constructed with a formal awareness and ear for instrumental colour that puts his music amongst the greats. He worked at his sizeable chamber output consistently throughout his life.

For this mini-festival, curator Daniel Tong has assembled a thrilling line-up of musicians: his own London Bridge Ensemble, the award-winning Navarra Quartet and Kungsbacka Trio and an ensemble of leading players from his festival in the Wye Valley.

They present lesser-known Dvořák masterpieces alongside favourites like the Dumky Trio, Gypsy Songs, Piano Quintet and Serenade for Strings.

Expect sparks to fly!

Panufnik 100: A Family Celebration ( Sun 30th Nov - Sun 30th Nov 2014)

with The Brodsky Quartet, Jacqui Dankworth, Charlie Wood, Clare Hammond, Heather Shipp, Robert Smissen, Richard May, Norman Lebrecht and The Panufnik Family

Forged in the fires of the two World Wars, Sir Andrzej Panufnik's compositional output is inextricably linked with the major social and political events of the 20th century. Born in Warsaw at the onset of the First World War, he lived through the German occupation of the city in the Second World War and participated in musical resistance activities with the composer Lutosławski. Over the course of the conflict, Panufnik lost many of his closest relatives and saw his compositions consumed by the fires of the Warsaw Uprising. Initially fêted by the socialist government, he was unwilling to compose the suitably 'patriotic' music demanded of him by the regime and was forced to make a dramatic escape to Britain in 1954.

This Centenary Celebration will present chamber works spanning his life – from his piano trio (1934), reconstructed after the war, to his three string quartets (written between 1976 and 1990) to be performed by the Brodsky Quartet, 'Artists in Residence' at Kings Place.

The programmes will include complementary pieces by his daughter Roxanna including the London Première of a new quartet especially written for the Brodsky Quartet. The Celebration will culminate with a 1930s Warsaw Cabaret evening, led by Jacqui Dankworth and Charlie Wood.

Support Panufnik 100: Opportunities for business sponsorship and individual support of the celebration are available, with associated 'rewards'. For details, contact Sarah Trelawny Ford at Hazard Chase Ltd. on 01223 706416 or email sarah.trelawny@hazardchase.co.uk
