An internationally renowned Anglo-Irish string quartet based in the UK, the versatile and award-winning Carducci String Quartet has performed everything from brand new quartets, classic works by Haydn and the complete Shostakovich cycles. Julian Bliss is one of the world’s finest clarinetists excelling as a concert soloist, chamber musician, jazz artist, masterclass leader, and tireless musical explorer.

The programme includes the stunning clarinet quintet by Brahms, one of those immortal pieces one is never tired of and Gumboots (for string quartet and clarinet) – “an engaging new work which deserves a place in the chamber repertory” (Gramophone).
