Bollington Chamber Concerts

Bollington Chamber Concerts

With superb musical interpretations and an unparalleled listening environment, Bollington Chamber Concerts offer the perfect introduction to the most rewarding repertoires.

We are very privileged in Bollington to see many young string quartets and other ensembles at the start of their promising careers. They astonish us with virtuosity and insight that belies their tender years. But we also listen to wonderful, established ensembles with international reputations. We have been (slightly 'tongue-in-cheek') referred to as "The Wigmore Hall of the North"

Many people consider chamber music to be a difficult genre, and in many ways it is. It requires huge concentration from both performers and listeners, and the string quartet is generally regarded as the hardest genre for both. A further feature of the Bollington Concerts is that they almost always contain a modern or unfamiliar work. But far from being off-putting, these are often a hit with a receptive and open minded audience.

Performers love their visits to Bollington. They are warmly welcomed and their performances are received with discernment and delight. They often have a few informal and enlightening words to say about the music, and they rave about the warmth of the acoustic and the audience. Eager to return, the only mitigation against this is that all too quickly, they become very successful and too expensive. Luckily, a new generation of equally talented young musicians are always waiting to step into their shoes.

Those of you who have never been to a chamber concert or who think this music may not be for you, give it a try. You won’t find a more friendly welcome or a better standard of performance anywhere, and you may find yourself revelling in this amazing genre of music. And for you first-timers, we offer a £5 'taster' ticket.
