Britten Oboe Quartet

Friday, 4 June 2021, 7.30pm

Mark Simpson’s Oboe Quartet was premièred at Wigmore Hall in June 2019 and is dedicated to Nicholas Daniel, founder of the Britten Oboe Quartet. Thea Musgrave has this to say about her 2008 work, Cantilena: ‘The work is a short, lyrical piece where an outsider (the oboe) joins the group (a string trio) and adds to their dialogue. At first the newcomer is treated with a mixture of suspicion and agitation, but eventually is made welcome.’
