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 to audiences and explore lesser-known works as well as standard classics such as Mozart’s oboe quartet.
The Quartet is joined, for this concert, by the Momentum Artist, Catriona Lockhart. Momentum is a collective of leading solo artists who have pledged to support young artists in the first phase of their career by sharing performance opportunities. Catriona will perform Britten’s Phantasy Quartet op. 2.
