Knotwork: music for clarinet quartet

From the vigour of Graham Fitkin’s Vent and the flamboyance of Piazzolla to the refinement of two pieces by Eddie McGuire, alongside earlier music by Pierre Max Dubois and Alfred Uhl, the Fell Clarinet Quartet have created an inspired programme of superbly realised works from both the history and present of this still-young medium.

"Their style is electrifyingly unanimous, from deliciously judged extremes of timbre – both the ice-cool virtuosity and moody whispers that colour in equal measure."

"The quality of the repertoire is matched by the quality of the playing. This is a group with a bright future."


"as the Fell Clarinet Quartet show in their opening work, Graham Fitkin's Vent, there's plenty of scope for dreamy swirls and jagged honking with just four players."
