The start of another season, the close of another Creative Peebles Festival AND Music in Peebles hits 70, so here’s a truly special concert worthy of the occasion.

Michael Collins is one of the world’s foremost clarinettists; he was the first ever winner of the BBC Young Musician woodwind prize and last appeared in Peebles in 2010. The outstanding Heath Quartet are also making a welcome return, having played here in 2007.

Now they join forces to perform two much-loved works; the sparkling clarinet quintet by Weber and that by Mozart - one of the most popular pieces in the entire chamber music repertoire. Positioned between them is the first of German composer Jörg Widmann’s five string quartets, written in 1997 when he was 24.
