Friday 28th September
On the Friday afternoon a study/discussion session in The Swan on Beethoven's fanatically concentrated Quartet in F minor, op. 95, will be framed by two complete performances -- there were double performances of Beethoven’s quartets in his lifetime.

Saturday 29th September
The Saturday morning will be devoted to study of two of the greatest classical/romantic string quintets, Mozart’s Quintet in C, K515 (with two violas), and Schubert’s C major Quintet (with two cellos), in preparation for an evening concert at St Mary's Church. The extra cellist will be Moray Welsh, the second viola player Susie Mészáros (‘borrowed’ from the Chilingirian Quartet for the weekend). A detailed but non-technical investigation of the music will be complemented by biographical and cultural background, with the players on hand for instant demonstration and additional comment.
