Gould Standard ( Thu 28th Sep - Fri 15th Dec 2017)

‘Violinist Thomas Gould is one of a new generation of classical musicians who refuses to be defined by a single genre’ The Guardian

Violinist Thomas Gould, well-known to Kings Place audiences as a classical soloist and chamber musician, demonstrates his stylistic versatility in a series of concerts showcasing both old and new collaborations with musicians from the classical and jazz worlds. In the intimate environment of Hall Two, expect to hear new takes on familiar pieces, and plenty of spontaneous alchemy between musicians at their improvisatory best.

‘This series is about exploring the spaces between our musical worlds – hopefully that’s where the alchemy will take place...’ – Read more of our interview with Gould in our Autumn (Sep–Nov) issue of What’s On

London Piano Festival 2017 ( Thu 5th Oct - Sun 8th Oct 2017)

‘This piano day was altogether exemplary.’ The Sunday Times on London Piano Festival 2016

‘Welcome to the second London Piano Festival! Our inaugural festival in October 2016 was filled with a wide range of pianistic personalities, an abundance of inspiring repertoire and wonderfully committed audiences. This year’s concerts promise to build upon the excitement of the previous festival with many more superb artists, all of whom will perform music with which they feel a special affinity.

An underlying Russian theme with works by Rachmaninov, Borodin, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky will feature in many of the programmes. Our brand-new commission for this year’s Two-Piano Marathon is written especially for the LPF by captivating Russian composer Elena Langer. A sequence of solo recitals will run throughout with concerts by the outstanding Argentinian virtuoso Nelson Goerner, the highly individual Lisa Smirnova and former winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition, Ilya Itin. The much-loved Melvyn Tan will include a world premiere by Kevin Volans in his recital. A family concert narrated by Simon Callow followed by jazz from piano legend Jason Rebello will bring the long weekend to a close. 

We look forward to October and a thrilling, unmissable series of piano concerts!’

Korean Sounds ( Wed 11th Oct - Wed 13th Dec 2017)

Presenting opportunities for audiences to hear traditional Korean and classical music in one place, Korean Sounds: East Meets West returns this year to Kings Place.

East Meets West, presented by the Korean Cultural Centre UK at Kings Place has been curated around five themes, each designed to give audiences the chance to listen to both European and Korean music of either similar sentiment, character and purpose, or music from a similar historical period. The programme will present traditional Korean music (gugak) alongside western pieces and in so doing will explore what is common in both musical worlds as well as revealing how they differ.

Now in its second year, the Korean Sounds series offers a rare chance to hear Korean traditional music in the context of the European music which is more familiar to us. The impressive roster of performers the Korean Cultural Centre UK has put together for this series will certainly bring the best out of the diverse music of these two cultures which could not be more different and yet have so much in common.

Schubert Ensemble: Quintessentials ( Thu 12th Oct - Thu 9th Nov 2017)

12 Quintets, 6 Concerts


The piano quintets by Brahms, Dvořák and Schumann are among the most popular pieces in the chamber music world, but did you know that there are dozens of other piano quintets by a huge range of composers that are almost never played?

In this six-concert series, the Schubert Ensemble juxtaposes six of the best-known and most popular piano quintets with six more overlooked gems which are personal favourites of the Ensemble. This fascinating survey of one of chamber music’s most satisfying mediums will give audiences the opportunity to hear well-loved quintets such as those by Schumann and Dvořák, whilst discovering little-known masterpieces by composers such as Korngold, Dohnanyi, Enescu and Fauré.

Each concert will begin with one of the Ensemble’s highly-acclaimed ‘Behind the Notes’ sessions, in which they will explore and illuminate the lesser known work, using live performance to strip down the music and reveal its inner workings. Part Two will be a performance of both quintets.

Join us for what promises to be a fascinating voyage through some of the most exciting and neglected works in the repertoire, performed by a group that knows them inside and out.
