Carducci pull the strings

If you’re looking for a Sunday afternoon treat, a performance at St Mary’s Church in Bridgnorth at 3pm on 10 March will lift your spirits. The popular Carducci String Quartet will be joined at the venue by young pianist Clare Hammond in the first of the Romantic Piano Quintets series by the award-winning group, with events at different venues featuring pianists Peter Caelen and Simon Callaghan.

Director of Shropshire Music Trust Kate Hogwood says, “The concert will feature Mozart Quartet K465 No 19 (‘Dissonance’), Philip Glass Quartet No 5, and Schumann Piano Quintet. Carducci will explore the Romantic Piano Quintet in a series of quintet masterpieces by Schumann, Saint Saens and Brahms. These works, all written between 1842 and 1864 will be performed alongside some of the greatest string quartets, including by Mozart, Borodin and Britten.”

There will also be an introductory talk before this first concert. For tickets, visit or call 0333 666 3366; tickets are £17 or FREE for under 25s.
