Glendower Duo in Concert

The critically acclaimed Glendower Duo (Hannah Morgan, clarinet and Thomas Besnard, piano) gave a fabulous performance of my Sonatina for Clarinet and Piano at the Hertfordshire Chamber Music Series. In a well thought-out Franco-British programme, they also performed Paul Patterson's Conversations for clarinet and piano, and I was delighted that Paul came to see the concert.

Greg Hallam (baritone) and Robert Thompson (piano) will give a recital in the final concert of the Hertfordshire Chamber Music Series.

To find out more, and to book tickets for the concert, please visit the Hertfordshire Chamber Music website.

More About Chris Brammeld

Many of Chris's works have been performed regularly in the UK and abroad, and several of his choral pieces have been performed recently in London and elsewhere in the UK. The Swansea Bach Choir, under the direction of Greg Hallam, gave the premiere of To Hear The Angels Sing, and Silent Night was performed by the London Youth Children's Choir.

Chris has a growing reputation as a choral composer, and his catalogue also encompasses chamber music alongside other instrumental works. He is the founder and artistic director of the Hertfordshire Chamber Music Series, which next year will develop to become the Hertfordshire Chamber Music Festival.
