The Sunday Concerts season at Conway Hall was established in 1887 to help provide "affordable classical music for all", and it is still fulfilling that function. The Spring season has just been announced, with eleven concerts from 8 January to 19 March 2023, with free tickets for the under 25s and £5 tickets for NHS staff.

Repertoire on offer stretches from the 17th century to the present day, with a strong emphasis on the classic chamber music repertoire, and artists represented include up-and-coming ensembles and more well-known groups.

New music is well represented in the season, not only is the Brompton Quartet presenting a new piece by Noah Max (who won Conway Hall's Clements Prize last year), but there is also music by popular TV composer Peter Gregson, Osvaldo Golijov and Gyorgy Kurtag.

Anniversaries celebrated include 70 years since the death of Prokofiev, with a concert by Slovenian violinist Lana Trotovšek and Catalan pianist Maria Canyigueral. Whilst the Tippett Quartet will be celebrating its 25th anniversary with an album launch.

The season opens on 8 January with the Chaos Quartet in Mozart, Kurtag and Schubert's Death and the Maiden, and continues with the Carducci Quartet in Schubert, Beethoven and Peter Gregson, then the Brompton Quartet in Bridge, Brahms, Haydn and Noah Max.

The season ends on 19 March with the Elena Toponogova Ensemble in Glazunov, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Silvestrov, and a rare performance of Nikolai Medtner‘s Piano Quintet.
