The Bingham String Quartet, in their third visit to the Festival, gave the final concert by candlelight. Theirs was an interesting and exciting programme of works by Mozart, Dvorak and Kodaly, ending with a magical climax when the outstanding guitarist Jason Carter joined the quartet (with cellist James Halsey on the castanets) to play Boccherini's Fandango Quartet.
