To celebrate their new album release on SOMM, the Minerva Piano Trio‘s programme will feature a new arrangement of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite by Richard Birchall, made to celebrate the ballet suite’s 100th anniversary in 2022. We will also hear one of Richard’s own compositions and a further new arrangement of Caroline Shaw’s piece by Annie Yim, the trio’s pianist. A very special evening, not to be missed.

About the Sunday Concerts
Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series is the longest-running of its kind in Europe. Conway Hall was purpose-built in 1929 to host concerts and lectures, and they have continued here until the present day. The ethos of “affordable classical music for all” still remains.
The bar will be open before the concert and during the interval, in our foyer.
