This concert will put a song in your heart and a dance in your step! International star trumpet player Tine Thing Helseth joins Ensemble 360 to launch Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2023 in style, with the rhythms of charleston and tango from Martinů, de Falla’s instantly recognisable Fire Dance, and more.
Festival Curator Kathryn Stott joins the party, playing Dvořák’s sumptuous Slavonic dances for piano four hands with Ensemble 360’s Tim Horton, and the evening comes to a rollicking end as Ensemble 360 are joined by both Tine and Kathy for a tour de force from Saint-Saëns.
Celebrate the start of the Festival with Music in the Round and enjoy a post-concert complimentary glass of wine or soft drink in the Crucible Foyer (served to all ticket-holders).
