Scottish Clarinet Quartet

In this second of an occasional series of concerts featuring unusual members of the clarinet family, the Scottish Clarinet Quartet is joined by Scott Lygate on the Contrabass clarinet (a seriously impressive instrument at nearly nine feet long) to perform music by Glasgow-based composer Graham Hair. Guest mezzo-soprano Beth Taylor is accompanied by a trio of clarinets (ranging in size from sopranino to bass) to sing rarely-performed songs by Stravinsky and Dallapiccola, and the programme is rounded out with the group’s transcriptions of JS Bach’s Nun Komm der Heiden Heiland and sections from William Byrd’s Mass for Five Voices. A great opportunity to enjoy some remarkable chamber music in the beautiful acoustic of St Bride’s Episcopal Church.

Free admission, with retiring collection in aid of the Organ Restoration Fund.
