About this event
Mozart: Oboe Quartet in F K370
Bach: Wedding Cantata BWV202
Beethoven: Quartet in F, op 59 no 1 (Razumovsky)
The Callino Quartet, back in Dartington for their fourth annual Autumn chamber music festival, is widely considered to be one of the finest young ensembles to have emerged in Europe in recent years. They made their professional debut at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival in 1999 since when then they have impressed audiences and critics both at home and abroad with their fresh and insightful performances.
Based now in London, the Quartet has won several international prizes for their concerts and recordings. Their performances have been variously described in the press as “warm, expressive and risky” (Classics Online) and “tender, polished and dramatic” (Irish Times).
Tom Poster is one of the UK’s most outstanding young musicians whose skills and passions extend well beyond the conventional role of the concert pianist. He has been described as “a marvel, [who] can play anything in any style” (The Herald), “mercurially brilliant” (The Strad), and as having “a beautiful tone that you can sink into like a pile of cushions” (BBC Music).
Sasha Calin graduated with First Class Honours from the Royal Academy of Music and continued her studies in Leipzig with Christian Wetzel where she played with the Leipzig Gewandhaus orchestra. She went on to play regularly with Welsh National Opera and the London Symphony Orchestra and now plays first oboe with the Mozarteum Orchestra in Salzburg, Austria.
American-Dutch soprano Katharine Dain brings insatiable musical curiosity and expressive force to performances on both sides of the Atlantic. She sings music of many centuries and genres in both intimate and grand venues; recently she has become particularly known for assured, deeply-felt performances of contemporary scores and of the Germanic lyric repertoire from Mozart to Strauss.
