I am proud that the 2015/16 season has seen record attendance at Conway Hall for our world-class concerts and particularly that, thanks to the generous support of the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust, we have been able to welcome even more young people to our events. The remainder of Spring 2016 features an array of award-winning ensembles, both established and ‘new on the scene’ groups who many of you will have the chance of hearing for the first time at Conway Hall.
The Ruisi Quartet, winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Award for Young British String Players, will make their debut at Conway Hall while old favourites the Allegri Quartet, now in their 62nd year, will return to our series for the first time with their new leader, Martyn Jackson. We will also host a rare appearance by the Artea Quartet, led by Thomas Gould, in an evening of Schubert ahead of their recording for Champs Hill Records. If you were lucky enough to hear their performance of the ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet in 2014, you will know that this is a concert not to be missed.
Piano trios this season include the Leonore Trio who are set to release their disc of Lalo trios for Hyperion in summer 2016, Trio Fibonacci from Canada who are in Europe on a short tour and whose only UK performance is at Conway Hall, and the Galos Trio who will present a concert celebrating the bicentenary of Sir William Sterndale Bennett preceded by a pre-concert talk by our patron – and Bennett expert – Hiro Takenouchi.
As you will no doubt agree this is a most exciting programme! If you would like to be kept up-to-date with information about our performers and any new events please subscribe to our mailing list, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook. We look forward to welcoming you to Conway Hall.
