International Chamber Music Season
1999/2000 marks the 10th year of Intermusica presenting the world's greatest chamber ensembles and repertoire in the Queen Elizabeth Hall. This season sees a number of artists appearing in the series for the first time, including the Brentano String Quartet and Florestan Trio, pianists Leif Ove Andsnes, Till Fellner, Ignat Solzhenitsyn and Lars Vogt, violinists Christian Tetzlaff and Thomas Zehetmair, cellist Truls Mork, and soprano Felicity Lott. Old friends returning include the Juilliard, Tokyo and Vellinger String Quartets, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, cellist Steven Isserlis, and the Alban Berg Quartet, Associate Artists of the Royal Festival Hall. Of special note this year are two new innovations: duo-recitals and a special day devoted entirely to the chamber music of Dvorák.
