The seventh 2016 Proms Chamber Music Concert sees the premiere of Merula Perpetua
by Sally Beamish: an RPS/BBC Radio 3 New Generation Commission
performed by violist, Lise Berthaud, and pianist, David Saudubray, for whom the work was written. Chamber works by Schubert and Mozart will feature either side of Beamish's new work: the former’s quartet movement combining sobriety and vivacity, and the latter’s C major String Quintet – a work brimming with twists, interruptions and thrills.
