BBC Radio 3 Big Chamber Weekend: Grieg to Grainger
£10 (Under 18s free) Book Now

BBC Radio 3 comes to Saffron Hall for the weekend. Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces recitals from Norwegian pianist Christian Ihle Hadland and three musicians he collaborates with closely. The acoustic of our hall is simply perfect for chamber music, and each concert is being recorded for future broadcast.

A little Norwegian with a passionate heart, a strapping Aussie who joined the US Army, and a composer whose music was so powerful that contemporaries claimed that she must really be a man! The link between Edvard Grieg, Percy Grainger and Rebecca Clarke was friendship – and music. Three mini-masterpieces of unquenchable melody, imagination and spirit: this is why they call chamber music “the music of friends”.

Special offer: Book a ticket to all three BBC Radio 3 Big Chamber Weekend concerts for £30.

This concert will finish at approximately 3pm
