HOLMES CHAPEL MUSIC SOCIETY – TIPPETT STRING QUARTET WITH EMMA ABBATE
Saturday 23 October 2021 - 3:00 pm
Clonter is so delighted, after a long campaign, that the Holmes Chapel Music Society will be holding their 50th Season of Concerts at Clonter.
The celebrated Tippett Quartet has delighted critics and audiences alike with its animated, virtuosic performances and it’s inspired and attractive programming. They have performed at the BBC Proms, Cheltenham Festival, Snape Proms and numerous festivals throughout the UK and abroad, including tours of Europe, Canada and Mexico. The quartet regularly appears at Kings Place, Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Bridgewater Hall and frequently performs on BBC Radio 3. Alongside a busy touring schedule, the Tippett Quartet pursues a keen interest in educational work with both schools and universities and was Ensemble in Residence at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University for 2012-13. They are resident at Royal Holloway University, London and St. Edmunds’ School, Canterbury and they regularly visit the Royal Academy of Music.
Their broad and diverse repertoire highlights the Tippett Quartet’s unique versatility. They are equally at home with the giants of the classical world as they are with great contemporary composers. Their impressive catalogue of over twenty releases have not only topped the classical charts but have also entered the pop charts and received universal critical acclaim.
The Tippett Quartet are delighted to be collaborating with the wonderful pianist Emma Abbate.
Described as “an amazingly talented pianist” by the leading Italian magazine Musica, the Neapolitan pianist Emma Abbate enjoys a demanding career as a piano accompanist and chamber musician, working with some of the finest singers and instrumentalists of her generation. She has performed in duo recitals for international festivals and concert societies in Salzburg, Lisbon, Naples, Ischia, Koscierzyna and Sorrento, and at many prestigious UK venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, Royal Opera House, St John’s Smith Square, St George’s, Bristol and Aldeburgh Festival, in addition to broadcasts on BBC Radio 3.
