Chichester Cathedral Lunchtime Concerts series: Solarek Piano Trio

The Solarek Piano Trio has toured extensively through Britain and Europe and has given performances at London’s South Bank, St Johns Smith Square and St. David’s Hall, Cardiff. The trio regularly performs and gives masterclasses in Germany where they frequently introduce British composers like Alan Bush, Samuel Coleridge Taylor, Rebecca Clarke and Frank Bridge.

In 2019 the trio started collaborating with the author Anna Beer, a Fellow of Kellogg College, University of Oxford, whose 2016 celebration and exploration of the achievements of female composers through the centuries, ‘Sounds and Sweet Airs: the Forgotten Women of Classical Music’, was shortlisted for the RPS Creative Communication prize. Together with Anna the trio brings these previously neglected composers’ works to new audiences.

They recently have recorded works by Henriette Bosmans and have started a series of workshops and talks ‘silent scores’ with the aim of making the vast unheard repertoire by underrepresented women composers part of the curriculum for schools and colleges.


Chichester Cathedral’s popular lunchtime concerts take place on Tuesdays at 1.10pm during term time, in the spectacular setting of the Cathedral Nave. They are free and last approximately 50 minutes. There is a retiring collection. We suggest a minimum donation of £3 per person, with Gift Aid applied if possible.
