Scottish Clarinet Quartet with Annini Tsiouti (piano)
Composers have long delighted in the broad range of compositional possibilities offered to them by the diverse members of the clarinet family, each with its own character and individual charm. In this concert, the first of an occasional series, the familiar B-flat instrument is accompanied by its cousins the cheeky E-flat sopranino, the sonorous B-flat bass, and the melancholic Basset Horn. Joined by virtuoso pianist Annini Tsiouti, the Scottish Clarinet Quartet performs Graham Hair’s Mondrian Studies (UK premiere), Felix Mendelssohn’s charming but rarely-heard Concert Pieces for Clarinet, Basset Horn and Piano, and works by Matt Rogers and William Byrd.
Free Admission, with retiring collection in aid of the Organ Restoration Fund (St Bride’s Episcopal Church).
