The Nash Ensemble

Schubert String Trio in B flat, D 471 (9’)
Berwald Grand Septet in B flat (23’)
Beethoven Septet in E flat, Op. 20 (38’)

In this welcome return to Cheltenham, the ‘chamber music royalty’ of The Nash Ensemble (The Sunday Times) present three early 19th century works – two from Vienna and one from much farther north.

The fact that Franz Berwald was only a part-time composer – he made his living more as an orthopaedic surgeon in Berlin and manager of a glass works in his native Sweden – should not prejudice the inclusion of his Grand Septet, from 1828, in this programme. Full of charm and invention, his work for the unusual line-up of clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass is an appropriate warm-up for the weightier, earlier work by Beethoven.

Supported by Mary Mackenzie, Richard Walton and Friends

Pittville Pump Room

Pittville Pump Room is an elegant Grade 1 listed Regency building and perhaps the most famous example of Regency architecture in Cheltenham. Standing in regal splendour at one end of Pittville Park, the Pump Room is a monument to more than 100 years of fame that Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town.

The Festival’s morning recitals at the Pump Room are its continuing glory
