Ensemble 360 present a sumptuous afternoon of folk-inflected chamber music for strings and clarinet, which combines well-known works with some new discoveries.

Britten’s early invention and whimsy are at the fore in his charming and characterful Divertimenti. Holbrooke’s intoxicating depiction of a Scottish Island is a magical celtic evocation for clarinet and strings. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s exquisite Clarinet Quintet, arguably the composer’s greatest achievement in chamber music, owes a clear debt to the work of Dvořák, whose profoundly moving and ultimately celebratory ‘American’ Quartet reworks a cornucopia of diverse folk traditions and concludes this intimate and expansive programme.
