The Purbeck Chamber Music Festival (Artistic Director Natalie Clein), in its second year, is an exciting and expanding new development arising from concerts given by Natalie and Friends as part of the Purbeck Art Weeks Festival. It brings to Purbeck series of four concerts of music-making of the highest calibre by musicians of international standing.

Natalie Clein, a cellist with an international reputation, returns home to Purbeck with a superb line-up of concerts and musicians. She is a Dorset girl born and brought up in Poole. As a child, before she won the BBC Young Musician of the Year in 1994, she played some of her earliest cello concerts here in the Isle of Purbeck in local churches such as St George’s Langton Matravers and St James’ Kingston. These are both venues in which she still loves to perform – and the Festival weekend offers an exciting opportunity to come and hear some very special music-making by Natalie and Friends, in these and other intimate and beautiful Purbeck locations.

You can also come and listen to a Masterclass for talented young Dorset cello students given by Natalie Clein in St Mary's Church, Swanage, 1 Sept 2.30am. Tickets £5 on the door.

Cobbett’s Legacy I: In the Shadow of Brahms

The Berkeley Ensemble

Knussen: …upon one note…
Hurlstone: Phantasie for string quartet in A minor
Bridge: Phantasie for piano quartet in F-sharp minor
Stanford: Fantasy for clarinet and string quartet in F
Brahms: Clarinet Quintet

Join the Berkeley Ensemble as they begin their exploration of 20th Century British chamber music in a series of concerts and events celebrating Walter Willson Cobbett, who forged a school of British chamber composition from Bridge to Turnage and beyond.

Walter Willson Cobbett (1847-1937) was a philanthropist of great importance during the so-called English Musical Renaissance. Through his sponsorship of emerging composers of the day, he helped to forge a British school of chamber composition inspired by that of the first Renaissance. Cobbett’s Legacy explores the music sponsored by Cobbett – both famous and forgotten – across three concerts at The Forge.

When Cobbett set up his first competition for chamber composition in 1905, Brahms was the model for most composers working in Britain at the time. Cobbett’s competition was conceived to stimulate a distinct British school of composition based on the example of the first Renaissance and in particular, the single-movement viola fantasias of composers such as Purcell, Jenkins and Morley.

American Classical Orchestra: Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn

Krista Bennion Feeney, violin
American Classical Orchestra
Thomas Crawford, conductor


Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No 8
Mozart: Symphony No 35 ‘Haffner’

Krista Bennion Feeney (NY Times 2014 – ‘just the right mixture of refinement and rusticity’) performs the legendary Mendelssohn Concerto on a historic violin with the same configuration as that of Mendelssohn’s concertmaster Ferdinand David in 1845. Mozart’s thrilling Haffner Symphony and the Beethoven Eighth round out the opening night concert of the ACO’s 30th Season conducted by Thomas Crawford.

The Mendelssohn Violin Concerto is the most famous of all violin concerti. Krista Bennion Feeney is concertmaster of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and a frequent guest at ACO. Her violin was made in 1809 and has the distinction of having never been modernized. Thus, this violin has the same proportions, materials, and sound as that of Ferdinand David, Mendelssohn’s concertmaster at the Gewandhaus Orchestra. For this concert, the ACO string section will use the type of gut strings that were used by Mendelssohn, providing a unique window into his actual sound world.

The virtuosic Beethoven Eighth Symphony has a panoply of compositional devices that delight audiences and challenge musicians. Mozart’s Haffner Symphony is among his most high-spirited works, known for its brilliant overture and singing melodies.
