Simon Callaghan (piano)
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are sorry that the Greenwich Piano Trio are not able to play for us on 28 March. Their concert will be postponed to the autumn and will be announced in due course. We are delighted that our Director of Music Simon Callaghan will step in to perform a programme of Beethoven and Schumann, alongside lesser-known gems by Nicodé, Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann. Gramophone magazine described Simon as ‘a musician of curiosity and discernment, [whose] robust piano-playing is also thoughtful, subtle and refined’. Please join us for a wonderful solo piano recital, live from Conway Hall!
