Nicholas Daniel founded the Britten Oboe Quartet together with his colleagues and co-principals of the award-winning Britten Sinfonia; they all bring to this ensemble not only the highest musical standards but also the experience of playing together over many years, resulting in warm, expressive and, above all, enjoyable playing.
They bring music of the highest quality and have a policy to explore lesser-known works, both from Britain and from abroad. Tonight’s performance presents a varied programme culminating in Mozart’s famous Quartet in C major.
