Bandstand Chamber Festival The bandstand at Battersea Park is host to the Bandstand Chamber Festival during September when, as part of the Love Parks Wandsworth campaign, four major string quartets will be performing early evening concerts. The concerts are curated by Anthony Friend (promoter and clarinettist, Anthony took park in the premiere of my opera The Gardeners in June 2019), and he will be performing along with the Doric Quartet, the Maggini Quartet, Solem Quartet and the Hill Quartet. The park's Victorian bandstand is the venue for the concerts, each of which takes place at 6.30pm, and all are free; the idea is to encourage people in using parks.
The festival opens with the Doric Quartet in Mozart and Beethoven (1/9/2020), then the Maggini Quartet in Beethoven and Dvorak (4/9/2020), then Anthony Friend and the Solem Quartet in Haydn and Brahms (10/9/2020) and finally the Hill Quartet in Haydn and Ravel (15/9/2020).
Tickets are free but must be booked in advance, full details from Eventbrite. Published on 21 August 2020 by Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill.
