Performances Talkestra Thursday 26 July Talkestra concerts are different. These musicians don't just play the music, they talk about it. And they don't just talk about it, they take it apart to show you how it works and put it back together to show you how it sounds. This evening's concert is all about music by Arnold Schönberg, including two songs from 'Das Buch der Hängenden Gärten' performed by soloist Heather Cairncross, 'Three Pieces for Piano' which is performed by soloist Julian Jacobson and the extraordinary 'Pierrot Lunaire'. Talkestra talks you through the mysteries behind the works you're about to hear. Enjoy this novel concept; fun, relaxed, and not at all 'high-brow'. £12/£6 students; Lecture Room; 6pm CHROMA: String Quartet Thursday 9 August 2007 is the 10th anniversary of CHROMA: a dynamic, critically acclaimed chamber ensemble featuring some of Britain's most outstanding musicians.

In this evening's performance, Marcus Barcham-Stevens (violin), Anna Biggin (violin), Oliver Wilson (viola) and Clare O'Connell (cello) play J.S. Bach's 'Goldberg Variations' arranged by Sitkovetsky; Ian Wilson's 'Toward the Far Country' and 'Nell'ombra, nella luce' by Steven Stucky. CHROMA is currently Ensemble-in-Residence for Education at Spitalfields Festival, and the University of London's Royal Holloway and Bedford College. £12/£6 students; Lecture Room; 6pm Seeing Music, Hearing Colour Thursday 6 September Mark Rowan-Hull and the Coull Quartet with an introductory talk by Professor Vincent Walsh.

performance will explore the visual qualities within music and create a dialogue between the two art forms. Rowan-Hull's recent performances live on stage have taken place at the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal Festival Hall and at Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London. This performance will be preceded by an introductory talk by Mark Rowan-Hull and Professor Vincent Walsh about Synaesthesia (the joining of the senses) and its relationship to both music and visual art. £12/£6 students; Lecture Room; 6pm Canticum Saturday 15 September Canticum, a leading London Chamber Choir, returns to Chichester Cathedral with a programme of works by composers linked to abstract artists J.S. Bach (Paul Klee), Schönberg (Kandinsky), Messiaen (Valensi), and Debussy (Ceri Richards). They will also explore the musical links between the composers with pieces by Mendelssohn and Brahms, along with sixteen part choral works by Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss. The concert closes with a number of short song settings inspired by colour; Stanford's beautiful Blue Bird, Vaughan Williams' ever popular Greensleeves, and Lennon & McCartney's Blackbird. £18/£12/£8; students £9/£6/£4; Chichester Cathedral; 7.30pm Tickets are available from Pallant House Gallery, Chichester Cathedral and Bastows Classics.
