Artist in Residence Series

The Carducci Quartet and
Matthew Hunt
(clarinet)

Howells – Rhapsodic Quintet
Bartok – String Quartet no. 2
Mozart – Clarinet Quintet

Matthew Hunt makes the first of his residency appearances, as he joins the Carducci Quartet for Howells’ eloquent Rhapsodic Quintet and Mozart’s sublime Quintet in A major, one of the composer’s most admired works. In between, the Carduccis will play the second of Bartok’s six string quartets. For health reasons, Bartók avoided army service during WWI; he spent that difficult period collecting folk fragments, the influences of which are clear in the writing of this work, which premiered in 1918.

Running Time: 120 mins (approx.)

Post-concert lunch £25 for 2-course; £30 for 3 courses. Please book direct with Swinfen Hall on 01543 481494
