Concerts Programme

The Spring 2018 season of Sunday concerts at Conway Hall is a truly international one, embracing the most talented ensembles from around the United Kingdom alongside leading groups from the Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Austria and others.

The musical offering is equally as varied and encompasses music from the Baroque – the continuation of Ashok Klouda’s Bach series is a particular highlight – to the 20th century: Czech composer Karol Janovicky will give a pre-concert talk ahead of the performance of his own piano quartet on January 21st and Conway Hall will host the world premiere of Richard Reason’s ‘Dylan Thomas Song Cycle’ in February.

The chamber music of Franz Schubert will be a focus of our concerts this season, with no fewer than eleven of his greatest works providing a running theme throughout the season. Alongside Schubert and the other ‘greats’ of the chamber music world will we also hear performances of lesser-known works by composers such as Svendsen, Marx, Zemlinsky and Caplet, all adding to the vibrancy and variety of music on offer!

I would like to express my gratitude once again to you, our loyal audience and to the wonderful musicians who provide the highest quality performances each and every week in the wonderful acoustic of Conway Hall. I would also like to thank the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust and their invaluable support in subsidising tickets for those aged 8-25 for our concerts.

I do look forward to welcoming you to Conway Hall again in 2018 and would finally like to draw your attention to our ongoing fundraising campaign of which you can find details on the Support Us page. We would be very grateful for your support.

With best wishes,

Simon Callaghan
Director of Music
