Speaker: Misha Donat is a writer and lecturer. He is a regular broadcaster, and a speaker at several British concert venues.

Described as ‘chamber music royalty’ (Sunday Times) the Nash Ensemble has been thrilling audiences with its adventurous programming and virtuoso performances for over forty years.

It has premi.red over 300 new works, of which over 200 have been specially commissioned. Numerous awards and accolades have been won over the years, including The Edinburgh Festival Critics award ‘for general artistic excellence’ and two Royal Philharmonic Society awards.

Five members of the Nash join us for a weekend of music for piano and strings, including some for strings alone. Their first three concerts will offer us some of the best-known works in the repertoire. For their finale, a celebration of three of our greatest English composers: Britten, Bridge and Elgar – perhaps fitting, in this quintessentially English setting.
