River Storm with the Consone Quartet, Part 2 – Thames Festival Music Series

Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Strings/Keyboard Ensemble Prize, the London-based Consone Quartet is dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound-worlds of the classical and early romantic string quartet repertoire through period instrument performance.

Nestled on the banks of the Danube, Vienna has long been a centre for cultural development in Europe.  Many great musical luminaries lived and worked there, including Franz Schubert and Josef Haydn.  The music of these two composers has been closely associated with the Sturm und Drang literary movement of the late 18th century, pioneered by eminent writers including Goethe and Schiller, both of whom had a profound effect on the young Schubert.

In the second of this 2-part series, the Consone Quartet will perform Schubert’s Overture in C minor D8a; Haydn’s Op. 50, No. 5 in F major; and Mendelssohn’s Four Pieces for String Quartet, op.81 on period instruments.

Totally Thames Festival 2017

Totally Thames is an annual season of surprising, diverse and accessible arts and culture throughout the month of September. The programme is curated and managed by the Thames Festival Trust, with activity taking place on, beneath, and along the River Thames.

Launched in 2014, Totally Thames emerged from the idea to expand and replace the hugely successful two-day Thames Festival along the South Bank and Bankside that ran from 1997 -2013.

The month-long programme runs along the 42-mile stretch of the Thames through working collaboratively with artists, local communities, river interest organisations and businesses.

They aim to inspire, surprise and enthral through their programme

  • Spotlight the river with excellent, surprising and spectacular art
  • Champion a diverse and sustainable creative riverfront
  • Inspire the next generation of river ambassadors
  • Create unique and innovative opportunities to discover and learn
  • Support and nurture emerging artistic talent, placing the River Thames at the heart of new work
  • Each year we run an open call for events to be part of our programme these range from pop-up performances, boating events, art installations, River clean-ups, live performances, talks, workshops and much more.

They commission and support artists from all disciplines to create new work that spotlights the river and its rich heritage. The Thames is part of the fabric of London life, and has been since time immemorial. Its relationship to urban and rural surroundings is ever-changing, and this vibrancy lends itself to creating extraordinary and surprising artistic experiences.

Totally Thames forms part of the artistic programme delivered by the Thames Festival Trust that was set up in 1997 by Adrian Evans. The mission of Thames Festival Trust to increase the appreciation of rivers and their importance to us all through creating and promoting river and river-related art, education and heritage programmes.
