Russian Romances: London Chamber Ensemble Concert and Dinner  photo

Join distinguished violinist and creative director Madeleine Mitchell and her London Chamber Ensemble as they take us on an Anglo-Russian musical journey, with a live string quartet performance inspired by the 'Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution' exhibition. Highlights include Borodin's romantic Quartet no 2, as well as the premiere of Mitchell's arrangement of 'Luchinushka' (Russian Lament, 1917) by Herbert Howells CH CBE and other exquisite Russian short pieces. The introduced concert will be followed by a themed three-course dinner in the Members' Room.
