‘Michael Collins plays with an irresistible exuberance that I’ve not heard equalled’ Gramophone Magazine

Michael Collins’ dazzling virtuosity and sensitive musicianship has earned him recognition as one of today’s most distinguished soloists and as a leading exponent of his instrument. In 2007 Michael received the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Instrumentalist of the Year Award in recognition of the pivotal role that he has played in expanding the clarinet repertoire, commissioning and premiering repertoire by some of today’s most highly regarded composers. Michael performs this concert with his duo partner David Quigley, himself an award winning pianist who has enjoyed a varied career as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician.

Admission: £15, £12 concessions, £8 Friends, £5 students
