Double Concert

Birdsall House hosts two concerts, both performed twice, with the audience changing places after the one hour interval. The audience is invited to picnic in the grounds between the two concerts.


CONCERT I (Ballroom)

Pavel Kolesnikov piano

Carducci Quartet 

Bartók Romanian Folk Dances
Chopin Piano Concerto no. 2 in F minor


The shimmering virtuosity of Chopin’s 2nd piano concerto shines even more intimately in the composer’s own chamber arrangement for string quartet. Rising star Pavel Kolesnikov joins the Carducci Quartet to perform it in the ballroom of Birdsall House.


‘Pavel Kolesnikov…has something that signals a unique individuality: he knows how to tell stories, without forcing his voice.’ – Diapason


‘A poet of the keyboard.’ – The Guardian


CONCERT 2 (Dining Room)

Sean Shibe guitar

Dowland Fantasies and Galliards
J.S Bach BWV996: Prelude and Presto, Allemande, Sarabande
Poulenc Sarabane
Albéniz Asturias


The multi-award-winning guitarist brings a typically colourful and wide-ranging programme to the elegant drawing room of Birdsall House.


‘He is an artist blessed with grace to spare, and a roar that is fearsome.’ – BBC Music Magazine

‘genius is a term which should rarely be applied to performing musicians, but at 25 he has it.’ ­– Arts Desk
