About the players

Reiko’s playing is ‘beautifully poised’ and ‘a total joy’. She fuses the sensibilities of a musician raised in the Far East who trained in the West and has recently completed a successful series of concerts celebrating the life and work of Clara Schumann. Her debut CD of music by Bach, Beethoven and Schubert was ‘irresistible’.

Giving ‘a masterclass in unanimity of musical purpose, in which severity could melt seamlessly into charm and drama into geniality’, the Carducci is one of today’s most accomplished and versatile ensembles. They were awarded a Royal Philharmonic Society Award for ‘Shostakovich15’: performing all 15 string quartets across the globe in 2015.
