Espressivo - Teddington Summer Music

  • MADELEINE MITCHELL violin GORDON MACKAY violin
  • KATE MUSKER viola JOSEPH SPOONER cello
  • TONY LAMB clarinet

Teddington Summer Music's first concert features two of the most richly expressive and best-loved works in the chamber music repertoire.

String Quartet No. 12 in F, Op 96 DVOŘAK

Written during an extended stay in the United States, shortly after the completion of his New World Symphony. It abounds in melody and good humour, reflecting the composer's personal happiness at that time.

Clarinet Quintet in A, K 581 MOZART

After more than 200 years, the Clarinet Quintet remains one of the greatest works for this combination of instruments, and the endlessly inventive musical ideas and changing moods offer a life-affirming experience.

Adagio for Clarinet and Strings BAERMANN

The programme begins with the gloriously serene Adagio for clarinet and strings.

How to get there

  • By train: The nearest train station is Hampton Wick - 7 minutes walk away. It connects easily with Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Richmond. Turn right out the station and then follow directions below as if driving from Kingston. Langdon Park is off Kingston Road, opposite Wick Road. We are in the big building on the right once you have turned into Langdon Park.
  • By bus: The 281 stops outside the building, travelling from Tolworth and Kingston in one direction, and Teddington and Twickenham in the other. The 285, which links Kingston and Heathrow airport, also stops outside.
  • By car: If you're driving from Kingston, drive past Hampton Wick station on the right and then take the first right after Normansfield Avenue. This isn't named on the map but is called "Langdon Park". Turn immediately right again and park in one of the spaces marked "L.D.C. Reserved Parking". Walk down the gravel path (edged with red brick) and you will come to a big red door on the left, which is the main entrance into the building. If you are approaching from the Twickenham/Richmond direction then take your first left after Holmesdale Road into Langdon Park and then carry on as above.
