The Piatti String Quartet and Michael Collins (Clarinet)

Date: 13/02/2023 19:30

  • Mozart Clarinet Quintet
  • Shostakovich String Quartet no 10.

The Piatti String Quartet is one of the most distinguished quartets of their generation. They have performed at all the major UK festivals and venues, and in concerts throughout the world. Famed for their diverse programming and passionate interpretations across the spectrum of quartet writing, they tailor their performances with the violins regularly swapping parts to bring out extra nuances and colours in every work.

Michael Collins continues his distinguished career as a soloist and in recent years has also become highly regarded as a conductor. He has performed with many famous orchestras and chamber ensembles in the UK and world wide.

Mozart’s exquisite Clarinet Quintet never fails to delight audiences and remains one of the composer’s most admired works. In this, Mozart combines his gifts for three genres in which he was supreme: opera, the concerto and the string quartet.

Written and premiered in 1964, Shostakovich’s 10th String Quartet is one of emotional richness, imagery and variety, but at the same time reflects the uncertain mood of his earlier Stalin-era quartets.
