Since the building first opened in 2003, BBC Radio 3 have been presenting these concerts, which are recorded for broadcast at a later date, to ever-increasing numbers of people. Past seasons have included series of Bach sonatas and partitas, string quartets by Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart, Chopin piano music, song cycles by Mendelssohn, Mahler and Schumann, Piano Variations, and a Stravinsky, Debussy and Prokofiev series. We have played host to residencies by the Brodsky Quartet and Nash Ensemble, and have welcomed young performers from the ECHO Rising Stars programme.
Each concert starts at 1pm and lasts for approximately one hour.
NB all concerts take place on Fridays. All concerts start at 1pm, except for the Rush-Hour concerts on 30 October and 6 November 2020.
