Concerts: Piatti Quartet on Sunday 15th December 2019
Our Autumn 2019 series of concerts comes to a close with Schubert's G major quartet, his last work for the genre. To welcome in the festive season, the Piatti Quartet's performance begins with Suk's Meditation on 'St Wenceslas', composed when he was second violinist in the Bohemian String Quartet and later arranged for string orchestra. Shostakovich's eighth quartet, arguably the most well known of his 15 essays in the genre and containing numerous self quotes, lies at the centre of a programme not to be missed!

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.
