Britten Oboe Quartet

Playing a dazzling programme of Mozart, Elisabeth Lutyens and Rutland Boughton Music on Mondays is proud to welcome these consummate artists to Luton. The concert includes the world première of a piece from composers Colin Hazel and Peter Whittle.

‘If you were assembling the chamber music equivalent of a fantasy football team, chances are that the oboist Nicholas Daniel…and the violinist Jacqueline Shave would all be high on the list. Add the wonderful Caroline Dearnley on cello and Clare Finnimore on viola and you have a supergroup of serious heft.’ The New Statesman

‘Nicholas Daniel …the 2011 winner of the Queen’s Medal for Music is arguably Britain’s most virtuosic and adventurous instrumentalist and as mesmerising a talent now, at 53, as he was when he won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition 35 years ago.’ The Times
