Britten Sinfonia’s acclaimed At Lunch series begins its 2013-14 season with one of the pinnacles of Fauré’s chamber output, his superbly crafted Second Piano Quintet. The quartet strikes a genuinely equal balance amongst the four instrumentalists, three of whom will also give the world premiere of a new work for string trio by Scottish-based composer Sally Beamish. Renowned for their adventurous but thoughtful performances, Britten Sinfonia complete the programme with a movement from one of Mozart’s Violin Sonatas and Lutoslawski’s Duo for viola and cello whose centenary is celebrated in 2013.
