7.30pm | The Francis Crick Institute

On March 26th, for its first concert of 2020, Philomel Project will present an eclectic programme that is as varied and colourful as the superb lineup of musicians taking part. The evening will focus on exploring the trajectory of chamber music repertoire created over the last 200 years, featuring beloved classics as well as little known gems. Programme highlights to include Alisa Firsova’s monumental “Bride of the Wind” for piano duet written in 2015, Claude Debussy’s magical and timeless Sonata for cello and piano of 1915, and a selection of Robert Schumann's romantic lieder from his 1840 cycle "Myrthen".
