Kaleidoscope Collective

Fri 18 June, 3pm & 7pm

Part of Summer at Snape

Kaleidoscope Collective brings together a group of outstanding musicians united by their passion for sharing the joy and intimacy of chamber music.

Kaleidoscope Collective frames its rich and varied programme with two chamber works – Frank Bridge’s impassioned single-movement Phantasy Piano Quartet and Amy Beach’s magnificent, lushly romantic Piano Quintet.

Grammy Award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman joins the ensemble to perform one of Vaughan Williams’ most exquisite folk song settings and a set of songs by the Venezuelan-born Frenchman Reynaldo Hahn, in new chamber arrangements by Kaleidoscope’s founder and pianist, Tom Poster.
