We shall never become musicians unless we understand the ideals of temperance, fortitude, liberality and magnificence’ Plato

In our annual Master Series, we present renowned artists in recital in the radiant acoustic of Hall One, an intimate space expressly designed for the purpose. We have asked them to play the music they love best, the greatest works of the classical canon.

The 2021/22 season opens with the incomparable French Diotima Quartet, joining forces with acclaimed clarinettist Mark Simpson for the world premiere of a clarinet quintet by Thomas Adès, for which Kings Place is proud to be lead commissioner. They pair this new work with Brahms’s masterful Clarinet Quintet.

In October, we welcome eminent Dutch cellist Pieter Wispelwey, joined by the questing pianist Alasdair Beatson, for a rendition of all five of Beethoven’s sonatas for piano and cello.

More concerts will be confirmed in due course.
