Praised by The New York Times for their 'irrepressible dramatic spirit', BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Calidore String Quartet make their Proms debut here in a concert pairing a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Caroline Shaw with Schumann's richly Romantic Piano Quintet in E flat major - a buoyant, virtuosic work that pioneered the piano quintet genre as we know it today.
