Sledmere House and Church are the venues for two concerts, both performed twice, with the audience changing places after a picnic interval



Schubert and Co.


Schubert Lieder and part-songs


An exciting new vocal ensemble recreates the spirit of the Schubertiade – the intimate and informal atmosphere of music-making that was so close to Schubert’s heart – with eight singers gathered around the piano for some of the composer’s most uplifting works. Schubertian dances are played as the audience arrive; solo and ensemble numbers are introduced from the stage; and the audience is warmly invited to chat with the performers before and after the performance.



Esme Quartet


Schubert String Quartet in G, D.887


Played here by the winners of the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, Schubert’s final string quartet explores a breathtaking range of emotions and has long been considered one of his greatest works.

The grounds of Sledmere will be open from 5.30pm for concertgoers and there will be a further picnic opportunity during the 45-minute interval between performances when a bar will be available.
