 *ONLINE* Sunday Concerts: Solem Quartet & Anthony Friend


*** We are sadly unable to welcome an audience to Conway Hall for this performance due to the national lockdown. Tickets for the live streamed performance are still available. ***

Conway Hall’s historic Sunday Concerts series is presenting its 2021 Spring Season as a series of live online performances via Youtube Live, using state of the art live-stream equipment to give you the very best in audio and visual quality. 


Solem Quartet & Anthony Friend (clarinet)

Winners of the 2014 Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Competition, the Solem Quartet are joined by star clarinettist Anthony Friend, whose playing has been described as ‘delicious’ (The Times) and ‘energised and raunchy, but not too much’ (The Telegraph). Their Conway Hall programme sets Brahms’ much-loved quintet against a colourful and varied first half, featuring arrangements by the quartet’s own violinist, William Newell.

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.


** This performance will be live-streamed online using Vimeo and YouTube Live. A link to join the concert will be sent to ticket holders on the day of the event. *
