FREE // Bach String Quartet: Pre-concert Foyer performance

London Chamber Music Sundays
Music / Sunday, 19 February 2017 - 5:45pm / Concert Level (-2)
Free (not ticketed)

Haydn String Quartet No. 66 in G, Op. 77 No. 1 Hob.III:81 Lobkowitz

Ullman String Quartet No. 3, Op. 46

Emmanuel Bach violin

Gabriella Jones violin

Henrietta Hill viola

Joe Davies cello

Newly formed, by musicians from the Royal College of Music and Guildhall, the Bach Quartet’s members have performed at festivals and major venues in the UK, Europe and the USA. Alongside traditional quartet repertoire, they share a passion for more unusual 20th-century and contemporary works. They have received coaching from distinguished chamber musicians, including James Boyd, Pavel Fischer, Simon Rowland-Jones, and Catherine Manson, and collaborated with the Wihan, Elias and Endellion Quartets. 

The piece by Haydn has been chosen to reflect the keyboard concerto in the Kings Place evening concert. Mozart also revered Haydn, ‘There is no one who can do it all – to joke and to terrify, to evoke laughter and profound sentiment – and all equally well, except Joseph Haydn.’ Ullmann, like Pavel Haas, was a central European composer killed during the Holocaust. It is his only surviving quartet; the four movements are continuous.


Emmanuel Bach 
is undertaking an Artist Diploma at the Royal College of Music, studying with Radu Blidar, supported by the HR Taylor Trust. He has performed concertos by Brahms, Bruch, Paganini, Tchaikovsky and others, with orchestras in the UK and abroad. As a chamber musician, he was a Fellow on the Norfolk Festival 2016 in the USA, and a Leverhulme Fellow on Pro Corda Academy. He notably gave the first performance of Lennox Berkeley’s Sonata No.1, and performed with Anne-Sophie Mutter in Bach’s Double Concerto. He is grateful for support from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, RCM, and English-Speaking Union.

Violinist Gabriella Jones has won many prizes and awards, performing at major venues including Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Cadogan Hall, with musicians such as Leon McCawley, Tom Poster and the Endellion Quartet. Gabriella has appeared at festivals in the UK, Europe and USA, most recently the Dartington International Summer School. She has also collaborated with contemporary composers, premiering works by Sally Beamish and John Joubert. Previously, she studied at Trinity College, Cambridge. She is studying for a Masters with Detlef Hahn, at the Royal College of Music, as an RCM scholar supported by the Yehudi Menuhin Award.

Henrietta Hill is a Strings Fellow at the Guildhall, studying with Matt Jones, and enjoys a career as a chamber musician, soloist and orchestral musician. She has performed several times with the Wihan Quartet, and is a member of Ensemble Nova Luce. She has performed alongside the London Symphony Orchestra and is the Philharmonia Orchestra’s MMSF Viola Fellow 2016-18. Henrietta previously studied with Garfield Jackson and Robin Ireland. She loves exploring contemporary music, having premiered works by Giles Swayne, Douglas Finch, Graham Fitkin, Rhiannon Randle and Joshua Borin.

Joe Davies is a cellist on the Artist Diploma programme at the Royal College of Music, where he studies with Melissa Phelps and Moray Welsh. He is supported by the John Lewis Partnership, the Harpenden Music Foundation, and the Deena Shypitka Awards. As a chamber musician and recitalist, he has performed at international festivals, including Amsterdam Grachtenfestival, Orpheus and Bacchus Festival, Yerevan Hassfest, with artists including the Wihan Quartet, Patrick Hammerle, and Duo Concertante. He has broadcast on Radio 3's programme In Tune, and recorded for Seawolf Records.
