Hosted by the LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Shaw Library, 6th Floor, Old Building

The ChamberMusicBox journey originally started in the most unlikely of ways when, halfway through 2015, the weekly delivery of organic vegetables landed on the doorstep of the food-obsessed household of violinist Yuri Kalnits and cellist Julia Morneweg, both at that point well-known on the chamber music circuit as two thirds of the Erato Piano Trio.

As Julia marvelled at the wonderful quality and variety of these ingredients in her veg box that had led her to discover so many new flavours and recipes, a thought came to her mind: “Why not come up with a similar concept for chamber concerts? Why does it always have to be a whole programme of string quartets, piano trios or cello sonatas when there is so much fabulous chamber music repertoire out there that barely gets heard and we have so many amazing musician friends from all over the world to play it with?” She shared her thoughts over dinner with Yuri – a man well-accustomed to his other half’s late-night musings – and, several glasses of wine later, the idea had a name: ChamberMusicBox!

Performance to include:

Beethoven - Septet in E flat major op 20; (clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello, and double bass)

Strauss - Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders (violin, clarinet, bassoon, horn and double bass)

Join the LSE Choir and Orchestra on Tuesday 28 March for the LSE Spring Concert in the beautiful surroundings of St Clement Danes Church.

More about this event

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies and regular public exhibitions.
