ZRI | Royal Albert Hall

Faithfully re-imagined, ZRI present one of Brahms's best loved chamber music works, the Clarinet Quintet, intertwined with sweet and gritty traditional dances from the Carpathian Mountains.

Re-scored with a santouri and accordion for the rich folk band sounds that inspired the original piece itself, ZRI weaves in gypsy and klezmer music to present a performance from a time when classical and folk came from the same place.

ZRI is a band of world class musicians who have appeared at major festivals, on major stages and in major films.
