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 bring music of the highest quality to audiences and to celebrate lesser-known works, both from Britain and from abroad.


Their programme features the full spectrum of music for Oboe Quartet, from Mozart’s Oboe Quartet to a world premiere by violinist, Jacqueline Shave.


If you were assembling the chamber music equivalent of a fantasy football team, chances are that the oboist Nicholas Daniel and the violinist Jacqueline Shave would all be high on the list. Add the wonderful Caroline Dearnley on cello and Clare Finnimore on viola and you have a supergroup of serious heft.’ Alexandra Coughlan, The New Statesman
