About this Event

The Wallace Collection St Cecilia's Hall 2024 Illustrated Concert Series

The Wallace Collection is engaged in a large-scale project focused on rediscovering the lost treasures of brass music in the Romantic Period. This series of two concerts display the brilliance of this music when played by virtuosos on the original instruments for which this music was written.

This Concert - Beyond Beethoven

The Wallace Collection present an illustrated concert where they will perform music by Beethoven, Auguste Mimart and James Reese Europe, talk about their instruments, and the world of innovation in which these works first saw the light of day.


In this concert, illustrated by contextual materials and spoken commentary, three works will be performed:

  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827) Die Alte Gute Zeit
  • Auguste Mimart (1828 – 68) Septuors 1 - 6
  • James Reese Europe (1881 - 1919) St Louis Blues

Added Value Opportunities Before And After The Concert

Every ticket includes pre-concert guided tours of the St Cecilia Music Museum, refreshments both before and after the concert, and opportunities to talk with the musicians and inspect their 19th-century period instruments.

The concert commences at 3:15pm, but please join us before (from 2:30pm) and afterwards to enjoy all these extra opportunities that your concert ticket includes.


Tickets are available by freewill donation (suggested donation £15 with concessions).
