Taking place inside the beautifully restored St John's Waterloo church, the five concerts in this winter's Spotlight Chamber Concerts series promise an intense and immersive live music experience with dramatic lighting centred only on the performers, and the audience seated in the dark and in the round.

The series consists of five concerts each led by different soloists and ensembles.

The series opens with pianist Benjamin Grosvenor and his violinist Hyeyoon Park performing Vaughan Williams’ Lark Ascending (originally for piano and violin) and Takemitsu’s Distance de fée and Grieg’s fiery Violin Sonata No. 3.

The acclaimed pianist Steven Osborne performs Schubert's Six moments musicaux, D. 780 and his Sonata in A major, D. 959.
