Brilliant string players at the RCM take to the stage for our ever-popular annual Super String Sunday.

Taking in more than 200 years of musical history, this year’s string marathon contrasts the most sublime and recognisable works of JS Bach with Belgian violinist and composer Eugene Ysaÿe’s formidable pieces.

From charming baroque dances to incredible feats of virtuosity, hear RCM violinists and cellists perform the complete solo works of JS Bach and Ysaÿe. Our doors will be open all day, so drop in for ten minutes or stay for hours.
