Bollington Arts Centre

During this time we are unable to safely hold concerts for live audiences at the Arts Centre so we are putting together a programme of streamed events. Please visit our website at www.bollington-chamber-concerts.org for the latest information.

Comments on our latest streamed concert…

“Seeing a concert is so different from hearing it without visuals – to state the obvious! The textures, the interweaving, the emotional states of the players, the interactions between them, etc., etc. Putting on the concert in Bollington Arts Centre, and streaming it from there, so that people can relate to the environment in which it is being played, seems also to make a valuable contribution to the overall experience. It makes it more like the real thing, the closest we can get to live music in these sad times.”
 
“Apropos the Piatti concert – what perfection! It was as if all their pent-up ache to perform had found expression in the one hour. I have rarely heard such a musically satisfying performance. In another time that would surely have had the audience on their feet! The quartet’s outstanding ensemble, of tone, intonation, timing and dynamics was utterly thrilling.”

The concert is available to view on demand at www.bollington-chamber-concerts.org/piatti

Of the entire classical repertoire, chamber music is considered by many to be the most rewarding for both players and listeners. It is rich in the most intimate and treasured works by both classical and modern composers. The proximity of the audience to the performers gives chamber music a special energy, and each musician can bring their best and unique contribution. The expert technical musicianship and the obvious mutual respect and communication between the players really connect with the audience.

We are so fortunate that the auditorium at the Bollington Arts Centre combines intimacy with a wonderful acoustic that both visiting musicians and audiences love. For over thirty years, Bollington Chamber Concerts have brought the very best musicians to Bollington. Many have been young ensembles that have continued to stellar careers; others have been established groups at their peak.

It is hard to describe in words the vibrancy and excitement generated by a live performance – something that can never be captured by radio or recorded music.

The Arts Centre is fully equipped for disabled access. If you would like a reserved parking place at the entrance level, please let us know. We realise that transport to the Arts Centre on a Saturday evening can be difficult if you do not have a car or a lift.
