A journey through the clarinet’s diverse interaction with 20th- and 21st-century chamber ensemble music, this concert showcases Rae W Todd with the fantastic Berkeley Ensemble.
Hailed as “an instinctive collective” (The Strad), the Berkeley Ensemble was formed with the aim of exploring little-known 20th- and 21st-century British chamber music alongside more established repertoire. They now enjoy a busy concert schedule throughout the UK and abroad and are much in demand for their inspiring work in education.
Engaging new audiences – most importantly through education – is central to the ensemble’s activities. Recent collaborations have included schemes with Tŷ Cerdd and PRS for Music, supporting emerging composers and generating new works. Ensemble-in-residence at the University of Hull and Ibstock Place School, the group also runs an annual chamber music course in Somerset.
