About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of chamber music at London's treasured and world‐renowned Conway Hall.
First prize winners of the 2019 Joseph Joachim International Chamber Music Competition, as well as the 2018 St Martin‐in‐the‐Fields Chamber Music Competition, the Barbican Quartet are quickly establishing themselves internationally.
For their Conway Hall début they offer a programme spanning over a century, from the “Father of the String Quartet” Joseph Haydn to Béla Bartók. They conclude with Schumann’s third quartet, dedicated to Mendelssohn and written in Schumann’s ‘chamber music year’ which also saw the composition of his Piano Quartet and Quintet, as well as two further string quartets.
