The Konvalia Quartet members are Alina Hiltunen and Agata Kubiak (violins), Raisa Yordanova Zapryanova (viola) and Szymon Pawlas (cello). The quartet’s international backgrounds influence their interpretations of new and canonical chamber repertoire. The Quartet specialises in post romantic and contemporary music and has performed world premieres of pieces by Simon Rigby, Martin Jones, Bartosz Szafranski, Martin Glover. The group took part in the Classical Music Hyper Production research project at Kings Place in 2015, and played in the Shostakovich-in-Motion project in 2016.

Practical Action is an international development charity with a difference. Founded by the radical economist and philosopher Fritz Schumacher, author of Small is Beautiful, the charity knows that the simplest ideas can have a life-changing effect.
