Gildas Quartet
Jack McNeill clarinet

  • David Bruce
    Gumboots, quintet for clarinet/bass clarinet and string quartet
  • Penderecki
    Quartet for clarinet and string trio

The Gildas Quartet is joined by clarinettist Jack McNeill to perform Penderecki’s Quartet for Clarinet and String Trio and David Bruce’s Gumboots. A work that pays homage to the black miners in apartheid era South Africa, Gumboots tells the story of the human spirit at times of adversity. The work contrasts the lively ‘Gumboot Dance’ style that was developed by the miners with a tender and evocative opening section that is both moving and captivating.
