Simon Callaghan (piano) and the Piatti String Quartet

Hosted by the LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Shaw Library, 6th Floor, Old Building

The distinguished Piatti Quartet are widely renowned for their ‘acute sensitivity’ and their ‘lyrical warmth.’ Since their prizewinning performances at the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, they have performed all over the world and made international broadcasts from many countries.

The Piattis are famed for their diverse programming and for passionate interpretations across the spectrum of quartet writing, tailoring their performances with the violinists regularly swapping parts to bring out extra nuances and colours in every work.

Steinway artist Simon Callaghan (@simondcallaghan) performs internationally as a soloist and chamber musician, in parallel with his highly successful career as a recording artist. 

In response to his regular performances in the UK’s major concert halls, his international tours to Asia, North America and Europe, and his extensive, acclaimed discography, Callaghan has developed a wide following. A favourite artist at the internationally-renowned Husum Festival of Piano Rarities in Germany, Callaghan’s recent sell-out recital drew praise from audience and critics, with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung describing his “cleverly curated recital full of discoveries” (VAN Magazine) as “technically brilliant”.

Performance to include:

Bridge - Phantasy Quartet in F# minor, H94

Brahms - Piano Quartet in G minor, op.25

The next lunchtime concert is on Thursday 9 March and will be performed by Ashley Fripp.

Join the LSE Choir and Orchestra on Tuesday 28 March for the LSE Spring Concert in the beautiful surroundings of St Clement Danes Church.
