We pay tribute to Professor Robert Pascall, whose vision led to the building of the Djanogly Recital Hall with a performance of one of his favourite works, Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet.
The concert also features the premiere of Howard Skempton’s settings of Viking poetry edited by Professor Judith Jesch which Lakeside commissioned especially for the University Chamber Choir.

Our autumn season is particularly auspicious as it marks the 25th anniversary of the Djanogly Recital Hall. Named as one of the ‘top 10 venues for chamber music in the UK’ these concerts celebrate the Recital Hall and extraordinary musicians – internationally renowned professionals, students and teachers – who have performed in it over the years.
