British composer, journalist, and lecturer Robert Hugill, returns to Conway Hall for a free Pre-Concert Talk, exploring arrangement, transcription and popularisation in classical chamber music.
Arrangements and transcriptions were everywhere in the late 18th and 19th centuries, from Beethoven symphonies for piano duet to Rossini for wind octet. Beethoven even did some himself, producing a piano trio version of one of his symphonies, and encouraged his contemporaries to write transcriptions of his music.
This free event will be followed by the evening’s Sunday Concert, in which the internationally renowned ensemble, I Musicanti, will perform a number of Beethoven symphonies. For more information and tickets to the Sunday Concert, visit our website: https://conwayhall.org.uk/event/i-musicanti-3/
