The Astrid String Quartet will perform five quintets in five days, with five special guests. This ambitious project features major works by Elgar, Dvo?ák, Brahms, Schubert, and world premieres by Richard Greer and Claire McCue.

A collaboration with distinguished cellist William Conway opens the series, and it concludes with illustrious pianist Scott Mitchell.  Also showcased are exciting young talents: clarinettist Calum Robertson and double bassist Stewart Wilson.  Prodigious trombonist Dávur Juul Magnussen joins the quartet to premier two new works specially commissioned for this event.
