Kell Wind Trio

The Kell wind trio has gained a reputation for giving lively and informative concerts which include music of many styles and genres - from music of the Baroque to accessible music from the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Kell Wind Trio is named after the pioneering English instrumentalist Reginald Kell, who was the first clarinettist to use vibrato in orchestral concerts.
Their programme contains music from Haydn, Tomasi, Mozart and Shostakovich.
