The up-and-coming Piatti Quartet make a welcome return to Conway Hall, joined by Director of Music Simon Callaghan to perform Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet, dating from 1940. They complete their richly varied programme with Brahm’s final essay in the genre and Turina’s folk-influenced ‘The Bullfighter’s Prayer’, originally composer for a quartet of ‘laúd’, Spanish folkloric instruments similar to mandolins.
