Elgar's piano quintet is one of three works completed during the summer of 1918 (the other works being the string quartet and the violin sonata), while he was staying at Brinkwells in Sussex, a country cottage rented by the Elgar family, and is dedicated to Ernest Newman, music critic of The Guardian. Simon Callaghan joins the Fitzwilliam Quartet for this performance, which will also include Haydn's 'Frog' quartet, and Beethoven's masterpiece, his 'Serioso' quartet.

The Sunday Concerts trace their history back to 1878 when the People's Concert Society was formed for the purpose of "increasing the popularity of good music by means of affordable concerts". The South Place Ethical Society acquired the concert series and, in 1929, had Conway Hall purpose built for them and, with the exception of the war years, the concerts seasons have continued ever since.

This event is in the Main Hall on the ground floor. For accessibility info:
