Radio 3's Big Chamber Weekend from Hull City of Culture 2017.
This week's Lunchtime Concerts were recorded at Radio 3's Big Chamber Weekend as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017. The University of Hull's Middleton Hall was the venue, and performers included the Sacconi Quartet, tenor James Gilchrist, viola player Philip Dukes and pianist Anna Tilbrook, who also curated the series.
