On Valentine’s Day, as a musical tribute to the highest infatuation of them all, violinist and chamber circuit darling Horia Văcărescu joins forces with cellist Anton Niculescu, former principal cellist of La Scala, prodigy pianist Andrei Licareţ, and world-acclaimed viola player Vladimir Mendelssohn for a passionate and evocative evening of Romantic repertoire. Double bass player Stacey Watton completes the consummate ensemble for Schubert’s ever-popular ‘Trout’ Quintet.
This concert is part of the prestigious series run by the London Chamber Music Society at Kings Place and is organised in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute in London.
Horia Văcărescu has played on a Vincenzo Ruggeri violin made in Cremona in 1720, kindly made available through the Dorothy Croft Trust for Young Musicians.
The event took place in Hall One at Kings Place.
