Fresh from their debut on the BBC’s ‘In Tune’ program, the Derek Paravicini Quartet will be demonstrating the depth of their sonic palette in aid of The Amber Trust on March 1 – in partnership with one of the biggest names in luxury food.
The must-hear group, featuring Amber patron Derek Paravicini (piano), Ben Holder (violin/vocals), Hannah Davey (vocals) and Ollie Howell (drums), is set to play an intimate show in The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salons at the iconic home of Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly.
Appetites of live music lovers will be sated by the Quartet’s unique sound, portraying a kaleidoscope of emotions, varying from achingly sad to humorous to infused with warmth. All is shot through with a fiery virtuosity.
The Quartet are a musical chameleon able to change their tune to suit any occasion, with a feast of new takes on classic songs and jazz standards, and a repertoire from ragtime to Radiohead, from Irving Berlin to the Beatles, from Cole Porter to Coldplay.
Audience members will not go hungry as the band’s gastronomic hosts will tempt the taste buds with a Classic Afternoon Tea. It will feature a selection of finger sandwiches, scones (with all the trimmings) and delicious pastries. A glass of Fortnum’s Blanc de Blancs, Grand Cru, Hostomme NV or a glass of Fortnum’s Organic Sparkling Tea 0% ABV, will also be to hand.
Tickets for this unique experience cost £95 with £10 from each ticket purchased going to The Amber Trust. There will also be a raffle to raise money for Amber. For full details and to book your place click here.
Twenty-four hours later The Amber Trust will host internationally acclaimed pianist Caterina Grewe in concert at the Wathen Hall in Barnes. Buy your tickets here.
