Cristo Barrios, clarinet

Elias String Quartet

The Pharos Arts Foundation presents a concert with the Spanish clarinettist Cristo Barrios, described by UK's International Record Review as "an alert, sensitive player who knows how to make new audiences for his instrument", and the Elias String Quartet, whose performances are described by The Sunday Telegraph as "Marvellous playing", "poetic, charismatic, virtuosic".

The concert will include Britten's Three Divertimenti and Schumann's String Quartet No. 1 in A minor, as well as the world premiere of a new work for clarinet and string quartet by the Cypriot composer and conductor Christina Athinodorou, whose works have been described by NuovaSesto Periodico as "looking back at her tradition to trace, through music, the path of her homeland, Cyprus, transporting the audience to a Mediterranean aura with an exotic taste".

Christina Athinodorou : Sterna
Benjamin Britten : Three Divertimenti
Robert Schumann : String Quartet No. 1 in A minor, Op. 41
