A collective response by artists, venues and a film company to the restrictions on live performance, The Polyphonic Concert Club offers classical music lovers a chance to support music-making at the very highest level.

The series takes the form of beautifully-filmed online chamber recitals, and presents established artists alongside rising stars. The recitals have been recorded at independent venues across the UK, including Manchester’s The Stoller Hall, St George’s in Bristol and The National Centre for Early Music in York.

Following concerts by violinist Jennifer Pike and the percussion-based Colin Currie Quartet earlier in March, we look forward to a recital by multi-award-winning vocal ensemble I Fagiolini’s on 25th March. This will feature repertoire from Byrd to Bach via Monteverdi. On 1st April, meanwhile, we’ll hear a programme of Baroque blockbusters from Red Priest, who according to BBC Music Magazine are “in a exhilarating class of their own”. This concert was recorded in high quality at Manchester’s beautiful Stoller Hall.

On 8th April, it’s another Stoller Hall concert, this time from The Castalian String Quartet. Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist of the Year 2019 award, the Quartet will perform Haydn, Adès and Janáćek. Finally on 15th April, we’ll hear a solo piano recital by Isata Kanneh-Mason, who was in the Piano Final of BBC Young Musician 2014 and held the prestigious Elton John Scholarship at The Royal Academy.

Ticket holders will be able to watch all of these concerts on catch-up until 29th April 2021.
