Now in its fourteenth year, the Camerata Musica concert series exists to bring new audiences, especially among Cambridge’s student body, to the great riches of classical music — and in performances by some of the world’s finest musicians. This season includes Lieder from Christian Gerhaher, one of the most distinguished baritones of our age; solo recitals by two of the most sought-after of contemporary pianists, Arcadi Volodos and Igor Levit; piano quintets from Boris Giltburg with the Pavel Haas Quartet; as well as the Cambridge debut concert of the world-renowned French cellist, Gautier Capuçon, with his co-artist Jérôme Ducros — and much else. (A full listing of the artists who have performed in previous Camerata Musica concerts is available here.)
The concert series is unique in Europe in reserving fully half of all tickets to every concert for students and those under 25 at the heavily subsidised price of £10. With music-making at the highest level both available and affordable, Camerata Musica has won a large and loyal audience among the student body, with all student tickets regularly being taken up and with heavy demand for returns.
Over recent years, between a quarter and a third of all new students arriving at Cambridge has signed up to the Camerata Musica mailing list, which provides regular notice of forthcoming concerts. Many of those attending are hearing a live classical concert for the first time.
None of this would be possible without the munificent suport of our Patrons and Benefactors, to whom Camerata Musica records its deep gratitude.
