Britten Oboe Quartet playing Mozart, Lutyens and Berkeley

Nicholas Daniel founded the Britten Oboe Quartet together with his colleagues and co-principals of the award-winning Britten Sinfonia; they all bring to this ensemble not only the highest musical standards but also the experience of playing together over many years, resulting in warm, expressive and above all enjoyable playing. They perform music of the highest quality and explore lesser-known works both from Britain and from abroad, as well as standard classics such as Mozart’s oboe quartet.
