The London Conchord Ensemble is fast becoming known as one of London’s finest ensembles. This concert features its pianist and wind players in two cornerstones of the chamber wind and piano repertoire – Beethoven’s early masterpiece from the 1790s and Poulenc’s ever-popular Sextet. As well as music by Saint-Saëns and Beethoven we also hear a chamber arrangement of one of Respighi’s most beautiful pieces.
