Next Concert

Our next concert will be Beethoven Plus! 11 on October 9th. The programme includes Beethoven’s youthful trio for flute, bassoon and piano, written when he was just fifteen, and other delectable morsels for this unusual combination of instruments.

Bookings now open!

We would like to offer a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped make our 10th Anniversary Celebration Day so very special.

We can’t wait to see you all again!

 We are friends and colleagues who draw on a wealth of experience gained through many years of music-making. Since our formation, we have given over 200 concerts, and have an enormous and varied repertoire of chamber music.

Ignaz Pleyel

We take our name from the Classical composer Ignaz Pleyel (1757-1831), a brilliant musician and businessman, who, in addition to writing a large body of accessible chamber music, helped increase the popularity of this wonderful kind of music-making amongst amateurs and professionals as both music publisher and piano manufacturer in the early nineteenth century
