The Lehane Wishart Studio opens out onto the Rose GardenChamber Music Weekend
with Stephen Gutman, Robert Codd, Ian Mitchell and Sue Dent

Friday 16 – Sunday 18 July 2021

Level: Advanced
Fee: £260

This course is selected to ensure a balance of instruments; participants should be at least Grade 8 standard. Limited Availability - Please enquire by email before registering.

Join pianist Stephen Gutman, clarinettist Ian Mitchell, bassoonist Robert Codd and horn-player Sue Dent who as tutors will draw on their extensive experience as soloists, chamber and orchestral musicians, to offer specialist coaching in the exploration of a wide range of works for wind ensemble and for piano and wind.

For our wind players there will be the opportunity to explore the repertoire from trio to dectet. Pieces with piano typically include the Sextets by Poulenc and Thuille, and the Quintets by Mozart and Beethoven. Trios for piano and wind could also be included. Pianists should be capable of playing works with some facility and everyone who comes should be a good sight-reader.

There will be mixing and matching for ensembles according to repertoire and standards.


All courses are held at Jackdaws in Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, approximately 14 miles south of Bath. Frome Train station is just 3 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
