Felix Mendelssohn’s favourite place to stay in London during the 1880s was 4 Hobart Place, home now to Duncan Lawrie Private Banking and also to one of English Herritage’s famous ‘blue plaques’.
The plaque was unveiled in February 2013 and we are delighted that the bank has taken the connection with this famous composer further by supporting Mendelssohn’s compositions to be performed at Eaton Square Concerts. St Peter’s Eaton Square (home to Eaton Square Concerts) is a neighbour to Hobart Place and the bank’s Managing Director, Matthew Parden said
“It is great to see talent coming to perform in Belgravia, even more so when you consider that the music being played will be so closely associated with the area”.
On the 7th November 2013 the innovative Trusler Caroll Wass trio will perform Mendelssohn’s beautiful Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op.49 alongside Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor and Copland’s little known Vitebsk.
