Former BBC New Generation Artists mezzo soprano Helen Charlston & Consone Quartet come together for an evening of storytelling, celebrating chamber music making in all its glory.

As we journey through the intimate world of song, let Robert Schumann’s beguiling Frauenliebe und -leben, Clara Schumann’s evocative Op.13 and songs by Felix & Fanny Mendelssohn whisk you into a world of romanticism. Presented in new arrangements for Period String Quartet and Voice (rather than voice and piano as one might expect) the intimacy and directness of chamber music is the centre of this story, transporting us all to a new world of life and love.

‘On the wings of a song,

I’ll carry you, my love, away,

Away…’ (Heinrich Heine)
