Welcome to our Spring 2017 season! You will find on this page all details of our upcoming concerts and children’s events, in a vibrant and exciting series of high-quality music making.
The Autumn 2016 season was particularly successful, with inspiring performances attended by huge audiences, and I have been touched by the number of patrons who have chosen to make donations to help continue our wonderful concerts. From January 2017 there will be donation boxes at the box office every week: your support really does help us to make sure we can go on providing high-quality music making at affordable prices for many years to come!
Spring 2017 features no fewer than 32 events (7 pre-concert talks/recitals, 5 children’s workshop and 21 concerts) with not only our home-grown stars on the stage but also musicians from Sweden, Germany, Italy and more. We will also present another exciting concert generously supported by The Musicians’ Company, in a programme framed by two of Schoenberg’s great works: his second string quartet and Pierrot Lunaire.
Adding even further to the variety of music on offer at Conway Hall, we welcome Trio Anima: a London-based trio of flute, viola and harp playing a colourful programme of French music, and the Conway Hall début of the Ducasse Trio (recent finalists in the YCAT Competition), whose repertoire will include Stravinsky’s exciting The Soldiers Tale in the arrangement for clarinet, violin and piano.
2017 is the centenary of the Russian Revolution and as such, we are delighted to present two concerts consisting entirely of Russian music and a special composer focus, on Russian-French composer, Georgy Catoire. Led by our patron and leading exponent of Catoire’s music, Hiro Takenouchi and violinist Dunja Lavrova, we will pay homage to this ‘lost’ composer and hopefully leave you wanting to hear more of his music!
I am very excited that the London Mozart Players and pianist, Howard Shelley have agreed to finish our Spring 2017 season with a beautiful classical programme: Mozart’s first and last piano concertos framed by symphonies of Haydn and Mysliveček. Join us for this very special event, with over 20 musicians filling Conway Hall with music!
