Sacconi's welcome return to Stratford
THE Sacconi String Quartet and clarinettist Timothy Orpen play the last of this season’s Stratford Chamber Music concerts at the Shakespeare Institute on Sunday, 20th March, at 7.30pm.
The programme includes Mozart’s Quartet in D Major, Ian Venables’ Canzonetta for Clarinet and String Quartet, and Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet in B Minor.
Timothy Orpen is currently the principal clarinettist of both the Royal Northern Sinfonia and the acclaimed Aurora Orchestra. He has been described as a “blazing talent” by The Times.
Chamber Music chairman, Brian Midgley, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Sacconi Quartet, formed in 2001, and one of our best young quartets, and are equally pleased to include work by the Worcestershire composer Ian Venables.
“It has been too long since we heard Brahms’ later masterpiece here, which fittingly ends our season.”
Tickets, £17 and students £5, are available on the door.
