The multi-award winning Schumann Quartett return to Kings Place with a fascinating programme inspired by Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Says violinist Ken Schumann of the programme, ‘chiaroscuro is like a journey through space and time. We are using Bach’s fugues as our “promenade”, like bridges which connect contrasting composers and music, from Glass to Gershwin, Mendelssohn to Shostakovich.’ Join the Schumann Quartett on this lovingly curated journey through darkness and illumination.

The Schumanns’ performance combined probing intensity with wit and energy, and a wonderful alertness to shifts of mood.Guardian
