The Kirckman Concerts selection panel of distinguished musicians has developed a reputation for spotting stars in the making, offering young musicians a London platform as well as the possibility of concerts further afield. Concertgoers have a unique opportunity to hear the exciting promise which these artists offer.


As four musicians heralding from across the globe (Japan, Korea, Denmark and the UK), the Kleio Quartet feel a unanimously deep connection to the string quartet repertoire and live for the vitality that comes from exploring it together.

The works they will present chart a particularly broad range of emotional and spectral qualities. Britten’s Three Divertimenti, a work on the edge and yet always grounded, displays three character pieces each replete with musical tropes from marches to burlesques. Its harmonic language is unmistakably Britten’s, with a certain acknowledgement of predecessors like Stravinsky and Bartok always present. From Britten they move to Haydn – the Quartet’s musical home. Humour is rarely very far from the surface in this quartet. Finally, they turn to Wynton Marsalis’s string quartet At the Octoroon Balls written in 1995, brimming with different kinds of jazz and folk elements. Having personal connections to Wynton himself, the Quartet has worked on this work with him and is thrilled to be bringing this music to the stage where it belongs.
