It is an absolute delight to be able to present our Autumn 2019 series of concerts, which features an enticing variety of music played by some of the finest musicians from the UK and abroad. Alongside a hearty helping of core repertoire by Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Haydn and others, I am particularly pleased that this season we will have the chance to hear a real rarity: the clarinet quintet by Benjamin Durrant, written in 1940 as the prizewinning entry of the Albert Clements competition, held at Conway Hall.
The Arcis Saxophone Quartet, based in Germany, will give their Conway Hall début performance, combining original works for saxophone ensemble with arrangements including Dvořák’s evergreen American quartet – which we will also have the chance to hear in its original version a few weeks earlier.
Further highlights include Camerata Alma Viva in a concert featuring all the Mozart Divertimenti and other works from their recent CD, and the Linos Piano Trio who will offer a prelude to Beethoven’s anniversary year in the form of intimate, chamber arrangements of his works.
I am sure you will agree that we have a truly exciting season of music in store, and I look forward to welcoming you to our concerts.
