Wed 2 Aug, Merton College Chapel
Merton college was founded in 1264 and is one of the oldest colleges in Oxford. The T-shaped chapel dates from 1290 and is considered to be one of Oxford's finest. It was designed as a small-scale cathedral but the knave was never built, so the choir and the transcepts form a T-shape.
Capacity: 200 - 300
Facilities: No parking facilities, refreshments sometimes available in quad in summer, seating in the ante-chapel is at the back behind a carved screen from where the performers cannot been seen, disabled access.

Richard Goode makes his first appearance at the Oxford Piano Festival in recital in the atmospheric setting of Merton College Chapel. Known as one of today’s leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music, Goode will perform works by Mozart, Janacek and Brahms, as well as a selection of Debussy’s intoxicating Préludes from Book II. Goode is renowned for the emotional depth he brings to his interpretations with the Financial Times noting playing that is “ever subtle and ever supple, [Goode] maintained a fragile fusion of virtuosity and introspection.”
