The Piatti Quartet have for many years been favourites at Conway Hall. Long standing musical partners of our Director of Music, Simon Callaghan, they have recently joined to form the Piatti Ensemble. With piano quartets at the centre of their creative work, they will present three concerts at Conway Hall in 2023, foregrounding the three masterpieces for piano quartet by Johannes Brahms.

Bridge’s Phantasy Piano Quartet was described by his teacher, Benjamin Britten, as ‘Sonorous yet lucid, with clear, clean lines, grateful to listen to and to play. It is the music of a practical musician, brought up in German orthodoxy, but who loved French romanticism and conception of sound—Brahms happily tempered with Fauré.’ Composer/pianist William Busch, whose rarely heard Piano Quartet completes the programme, was a pupil of John Ireland and the resident accompanist at Conway Hall in the first part of the twentieth century.

“…velvet gloved pianism of ravishing sensitivity.” (The Strad)

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.
