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 invite them to play the music they love best, the greatest works of the classical canon.

The 2023/24 season opens with acclaimed baroque violinist Rachel Podger – recently announced as Kings Place’s Artist in Focus – on 21 September with her BBC Music Magazine Award-winning project Tutta Sola.

The Diotima Quartet – one of the most in-demand chamber ensembles in the world – returns in October to perform modern masterpieces for string quartet by Janácek and Ligeti.

In November star soprano Danielle de Niese, joined by pianist and frequent collaborator Matthew Fletcher, presents an American songbook-inspired programme, interspersed with arias from operas by Mozart, Handel, Bizet, Dvořák and Gounod, displaying the versatility of de Niese’s.

Internationally-renowned guitarist Xuefei Yang collaborates with cellist Johannes Moser for a varied programme celebrating music from across the centuries in March next year.

And finally Chiaroscuro Quartet returns to close series, performing Beethoven’s Razumovsky quartets along with Haydn’s String Quartet in D Minor Op.9, June 2024.
