The Final of the 2018 Ivan Sutton Chamber Music Prize, marking the twentieth anniversary of the competition, will take place in the Music Hall of the Guildhall School, featuring piano-based chamber ensembles.

Established in 1998 with funding from City Music Society members, in memory of the founder of the Society, Ivan Sutton MBE (1914-1996), the Sutton Prize was set up at the Guildhall School to encourage the performance of chamber works with piano. Since then the competition has produced some outstanding ensembles and also some extraordinary musical discoveries. Examples of these discoveries are the works chosen by recent winners include the Duruflé Trio, playing a beautiful trio by their eponymous composer and the Lakeside Piano Trio revealing the beauties of Eduard Steuermann's arrangement of Schoenberg's magnificent Verklärte Nacht.

The 2017 winners, the Auden Piano Trio perform in the lunchtime series on Thursday 1st February at 1.05pm.

Admission is free

Please note that entry will only be permitted during a suitable pause in the performance.
