Concerts

Concerts take place in our two wonderful performance spaces – the museum itself and the Thames Tunnel Shaft

The Thames Tunnel Shaft

The Thames Tunnel Shaft is a huge underground chamber, half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe, directly above the railway. Before the trains came, the shaft echoed with applause for acrobats, tightrope walkers and serenaders performing in the tunnel. Now the shaft is a unique and stunning concert venue. Time Out listed the shaft as one of ‘London’s magical music venues’ and Radio 4 described it as an ‘underground cathedral’ .

The Museum

In the autumn and winter months concerts take place in the intimate setting of the museum itself. The museum has a wonderful acoustic, a lovely Bechstein grand piano and a welcoming bar!

Adriano Adewale & Marcelo Andrade Duo in the Brunel Museum: Friday 28 November 2014 at 7.30pm

 

Adriano Adewale & Marcelo Andrade at the Barbican. 7 April 2010From Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, respectively, Adriano and Marcelo are a dynamic duo who have been performing together for over 10 years. Both multi-instrumentalists and composers, the music that emanates from them is rich in color, shape and form, bringing a cascade of vibrant Brazilian traditional and modern sounds, which together  form soundscapes and music that capture samba, carnival and all the tropicalista trimmings your heart desires and your hips crave.

“Adriano Adewale boasts an imposing collection of firepower yet deploys it with rare restraint.” The Times

“London-based Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale has lately been proving he’s a priceless asset“ John Fordham The Guardian

“Bandleaders who can convincingly move from vocal and guitar to flute to saxophone to violin are exceptions rather then rules” – Jazzwise Magazine

“Up there with Ray Barreto, worthy of Gilberto Gil” – Songlines

Concert 1DivaAn evening of two piano music with the Grace Mo and Evelina Puzaite Piano Duo.

From Canada and Lithuania respectively, these two highly accomplished pianists enjoy their performing careers on the international platform. Grace Mo and Evelina Puzaite formed their piano duo in December 2012 when they brought some of the most exciting two piano repertoire to the stage fundraising for Cancer Research. Following their successful performance, the duo continued to explore the repertoire for two pianos and piano duet in depth, and have adopted various elements such as classical, folk, ballet, and tango into their concert programmes.

Tonight the two pianos four hands concert program features music by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Lutoslawski, Milhaud, and Ravel – a rare concert not to be missed!
