Hellensmusic Masterworks From Austria & Germany

Fanny Mendelssohn was a prolific composer whose music deserves a wider audience.

Her only String Quartet is unendingly lyrical, in turn soulful and vibrant.

It was the mellifluous playing of Anton Stadler that was the inspiration behind the creation of Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Quintet, one of the jewels of the Classical period, a work of rapt beauty and perfect symmetry in which any rivalry between the five instruments is purely fraternal. Brahms’ passionate and intense C minor Piano Quartet has elements both of youthfulness and of the deepest maturity – perhaps unsurprisingly, as the composer embarked upon it in his early twenties but did not complete it until almost twenty years later.

Discover Ledbury

Visit Ledbury a Herefordshire market town, lying east of Hereford, and west of the Malvern Hills. It has a significant number of timber-framed structures, in particular along Church Lane and High Street. One of the most outstanding is the Market House, built in 1617, located in the town centre.
