About the Professorship

The Humanitas Chair in Chamber Music has been made possible by the generous support of Mr Lawrence Saper.

The Humanitas Chair in Chamber Music will bring world-renowned performers to Cambridge to share insights into the character as well as the challenges of musical performance, explaining not only their own approach to a range of musical masterpieces but also the consequences for listeners of their interpretative choices. These 'behind the scene' observations will be complemented by actual performances, whether in masterclasses, open rehearsals, lecture-recitals or concerts.

Previous Humanitas Visiting Professors in Chamber Music

2012-13: Robert Levin (pianist and conductor)
2010-11: Alfred Brendel (pianist, music critic, poet and painter)
