Pre-concert Talk by Robert Hugill @ 5:30pm - Arrangement, Transcription and Popularisation

Arrangements and transcriptions were everywhere in the late 18th and 19th centuries, from Beethoven symphonies for piano duet to Rossini for wind octet. Beethoven even did some himself, producing a piano trio version of one of his symphonies, and encouraged his contemporaries to write transcriptions of his music.


The Sunday Concerts trace their history back to 1878 when the People's Concert Society was formed for the purpose of "increasing the popularity of good music by means of affordable concerts". The South Place Ethical Society acquired the concert series and, in 1929, had Conway Hall purpose built for them and, with the exception of the war years, the concerts seasons have continued ever since.
