Opening our 2022 season of concerts at Conway Hall are the prize-winning Echéa Quartet, chamber music fellows at the Royal College of Music. Their programme, spanning over a century, begins with the ‘Father of the string quartet’ Josef Haydn and ends with one of Beethoven’s last essays in the genre. In direct contrast is the shortest quartet of the six by Béla Bartók, thought by many to have made the most significant contribution to the string quartet medium since Beethoven.

About the Sunday Concerts
Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series is the longest-running of its kind in Europe. Conway Hall was purpose-built in 1929 to host concerts and lectures, and they have continued here until the present day. The ethos of “affordable classical music for all” still remains.
