The up-and-coming Piatti Quartet make a welcome return to Conway Hall, joined by acclaimed Steinway pianist (and our Director of Music) Simon Callaghan, to perform Shostakovich's Piano Quintet, dating from 1940. They complete their richly varied programme with Brahm's final essay in the genre and Turina's folk-influenced 'The Bullfighter's Prayer', originally composer for a quartet of 'laud', Spanish folkloric instruments similar to mandolins.

Turina | La oracion del torero (The bullfighter's prayer) Op.34
Brahms | String Quartet No.3 in B-flat major Op.67
Shostakovich | Piano Quintet in G minor Op.57

Nathaniel Anderson-Frank (violin)

Jessie Ann Richardson (cello)
Simon Callaghan (piano)


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.
