Portsmouth Chamber Music Series: Ensemble Perpetuo

Perpetuo is a dynamic and versatile collective of musicians who perform a wide variety of traditional and contemporary chamber music in new settings, regularly taking music to venues including museums, cafes, found spaces and other unexpected locations. Through collaborations with everything from dancers to photographers to chefs, the ensemble seeks out audiences who have never engaged with classical chamber music.

Fenella Humphreys last played in the series with the Lawson Piano Trio in May 2012. She mixes chamber music with a solo career in fairly equal measure.

The word Divertimento usually implies something light‐hearted, even frivolous, but this late Mozart work is perhaps the most sublime of all his chamber music. Leading up to this we have an intriguing mixture of lesser known trios by famous composers, and two duo rarities. Adrian Sutton is better known for a string of commissions for the National Theatre, including War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night‐time, and, most recently, Angels in America.
