I’ve promised to help promote the Conway Hall Sunday Concerts, where I’m playing a recital on Sunday 4 December at 6.30pm.
Conway Hall (25 Red Lion Square, Holborn, London WC1) is Europe’s longest-running chamber music series, and has been going since 1887. The series has gone through some wobbly patches, partly due to its policy of making tickets affordable for everyone, but the new organisers are determined to pursue this long-running idealistic policy. Even today the price of admission is only £8, or £4 for concessions. Very unusually, you cannot buy tickets in advance – which makes it a slightly nerve-racking experience for all concerned! So please just turn up on the night and come to hear Mozart, Ligeti and Schumann. The start time of 6.30pm is unusual too – but rather a good idea, I think, because it means people can eat afterwards without making it a very late evening.
