Wihan Quartet to the Sherwell Centre on Saturday, November 17
WHEN Plymouth Chamber Music Trust finally shut up shop back in 2010, after 16 successful seasons providing top-class recitals, it left a sizeable gap in the musical life of the city.
Plymouth University's Peninsula Arts is doing its bit to make up the deficit, and will be bringing back the highly-acclaimed Czech-based Wihan Quartet to the Sherwell Centre on Saturday, November 17, with a programme to include works by Dvorak and Beethoven – full details to follow next week.
But if you're lucky enough to be free next Thursday lunchtime, from 1pm to 2pm, then do get along to Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, and hear the Fournier Trio play a delightful, and eminently listenable programme of works by Arensky and Ravel.
While the latter's one-off piano trio regularly features on concert programmes, Arensky's superb First Trio in D minor, with its unmistakable echoes of the composer's teacher Tchaikovsky, is less often heard live.

The recital is part of the 20th International Concert Series organised by the indefatigable Jeanie Moore, who has already brought cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, pianists Mark Bebbington and John Lenehan, and clarinettist Peter Cigleris to the city since April – no mean feat when budgets are especially tight.
Formed in 2009, the London-based Fournier Trio – Sulki Yu (violin), Chiao-Ying Chang (piano) and Pei-Jee Ng (cello) – made a profound impression when it first played in the city in 2011, and is now rapidly emerging as one of the leading young ensembles, with a number of prestigious awards and successful tours to its name.
Tickets (£8.50) are available in advance from the Museum Shop, online from wegottickets.com or at the door.
