This Saturday at 8pm at Benslow Music Trust, Little Benslow Hills. Tickets £10/£7 concessions, free tickets for students, when booked in advance, tickets available from 01462 459446 and on the door with Margaret Archibald, David Campbell, Victoria Soames Samek clarinets with the Bingham String Quartet. Programme Aulis Sallinen String Quartet No. 3, Max Reger Quintet in A major, Martin Butler Clarinet Quintet, Mozart Quintet in A major. Three world class clarinettists and the Bingham String Quartet present a varied programme. The Bingham String Quartet, which has gained an international reputation for its interpretation of the classical repertoire and fresh and exciting approach to new music, start the programme String Quartet No. 3 by living Finnish composer Aulis Sallinen, whose music is lyrical and composed in a free serial manner, using a technique he developed that employs tonal elements such as triads. Mozart's and Reger's very popular and beautiful quintets, performed by Victoria Soames Samek and Margaret Archibald respectively, are among the most loved within the repertoire for clarinet and string quartet. The Mozart quintet is an especially suitable choice for the concert as 2006 is Mozart's 250th anniversary year. Victoria Soames Samek has performed internationally as a soloist and in numerous chamber ensembles, notably the Mühlfeld Trio, English Romantics and English Seranata. Margaret Archibald is a member of the London Mozart Players and freelances with many other orchestras. Clarinet Quintet by Martin Butler was written for David Campbell who will perform it in this concert. David Campbell especially enjoys the clarinet quintet repertoire which he has performed with many leading string quartets including the Alberni, Bingham, Endellion, Maggini, Medici, Sorrell, Schidlof and Vanbrugh.
