Steinway Artist Simon Callaghan performs internationally as a soloist and chamber musician. His recent tours have taken him to Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and on two occasions to the Banff Centre in Canada. This March he is delighted to join old friends Roger Coull, Philip Gallaway (violins), Jonathan Barritt (viola) and Nicholas Roberts (cello) of the distinguished Coull Quartet in Brahms’ mighty Piano Quintet in F minor. The concert – on Thurs 2nd March at 7.15pm – is at the University of Warwick, where the ensemble is Quartet-in-Residence.
A passionate chamber musician, Simon has collaborated with Jack Liebeck, Giovanni Guzzo, Tim Hugh, Thomas Gould, Raphael Wallfisch and the actors Timothy and Samuel West, and Prunella Scales. His extensive repertoire has included complete cycles of Beethoven and Brahms chamber works, and a three-concert residency at St John’s Smith Square in London, exploring the piano quartet medium. He plays the Brahms Quintet three times this season: this collaboration with the Coull Quartet and in two performances with the Carducci Quartet.
