The Barcelona Clarinet Players are a quartet of versatile clarinet players with a very wide trajectory and number of published Works. Innovation, fusion, interdisciplinarity and pedagogics are some of the concepts that best define the creative path of this ensemble. Their performances are known by their meticulous chamber work and a curated and energetic staging.

They have performed at the main Music Halls in Spain such as Auditorio 400 from Madrid, Palau de la Música de Valencia, Auditori de Barcelona or ADDA, and in countries such France, Austria, Belgium, USA or Mexico.
