Formed in 2002, the four founder members continue to demonstrate a shared passion for string quartet repertoire, infectiously reaching out to audiences with their energy and enthusiasm. The Sacconi enjoy a busy international career, performing regularly across the world, at Europe’s major venues, in recordings and on radio broadcasts. The Sacconi are Quartet in Association at the Royal College of Music and Quartet in Residence in Folkestone.

They are joined by William Howard for a performance of Jonathan Dove’s glittering Piano Quintet and Cesar Franck’s, one of the most impassioned expressions of unrequited love ever written.

About the Piano Series

After the interruption of lockdown, it is a great pleasure to be able to offer a second Piano Series.

Launched in November 2021 with pianist Melvyn Tan, the next three concerts take place on the third Saturday of January, March and May, setting a pattern that we hope to continue in the future.  The series offers a mix of familiar and less familiar repertoire, with a short work by a living composer in each programme, and the chance to hear some of the country’s leading performers in an attractive and welcoming venue.

Latest Covid guidance

tgs audience heads distance icon 2

While we are grateful that we can begin to operate in a more normal way, we are mindful that throughout the pandemic we have said that we will always put the wellbeing of our community first. We will continue to do so and we have decided, therefore, that for the time being we should keep some distancing practices in place.

In line with Government regulations introduced on the 10th December 2021 we ask that you continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt) when visiting the Goods Shed – this can be removed for the purposes of eating and drinking only – and to be conscious of social distancing in general. This will be harder for us financially but we think it is the right thing to do. We are open (performances, café and for other groups) as we have been whenever possible in this challenging period. We hope you understand, and that we can relax more fully in a couple of months.

Your support of us throughout this period has been humbling and we will do all we can to make your visits to the Goods Shed and café both comfortable and exciting.
