The Marmen Quartet Celebrates Robert Simpson Past Event


Haydn String Quartet in D major, Op. 64 No. 5, ‘Lark’ (20’)
Simpson String Quartet No. 1 (25’)


Marmen Quartet

The prize-winning young Marmen Quartet, formed in 2013 at London’s Royal College of Music, makes its BBC Proms debut with Haydn’s vivacious ‘Lark’ Quartet, which opens with a soaring violin melody that gives the work its nickname.

It is also the inspiration for the String Quartet No. 1 by Robert Simpson, performed in this centenary year of his birth. Its opening draws on Haydn’s own initial theme and its ingenious coda reflects Haydn’s elegant simplicity, with a nod to Beethoven thrown in for good measure.

Duration: approx. 1 hour (no interval)

These events are not socially distanced

With the lifting of Covid restrictions by the government on 19 July, the BBC Proms concerts are full-capacity events. As a result, there will be no social distancing for the Proms concerts taking place at Cadogan Hall. This means you may have other audience members sitting next to you.

The BBC Proms have asked that we use Covid certification for audience members to gain entry to Cadogan Hall for the Proms concerts. As such, you will need to show us a valid NHS Covid Pass. This is achieved when you have one of the following, and have registered it with the NHS:

  • evidence of a negative lateral flow test, either taken at home or at a test centre, within 48 hours of the performance
  • evidence of double vaccination provided via the NHS App or letter provided by the NHS
  • proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test taken within 180 days of the performance

Those under the age of 18 should have verbal confirmation from a parent or guardian that they have not received a positive test.

We also ask that all customers wear a mask when visiting Cadogan Hall.

If you have any questions or concerns about the above, please call our box office on 020 7730 4500.
