Hear the best ensembles in the Conservatoire compete for this coveted prize which concludes our Revolutionaries Chamber Music Festival.
The theme, Revolutionaries picks up on the explosion of Chamber Music activity and enthusiasm at the Conservatoire. Beethoven, perhaps the most revolutionary of the great composers, features largely, also two works by Schoenberg, including the wonderful 'Verkärte Nacht'.
Many other pieces by less obviously revolutionary composers are chosen for qualities which make them stand out from the ordinary, or represent a new development, a new combination of instruments or a new style.
