'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
