Brahms Beethoven – Colne

Date: Sunday 14th April 2013 14:30

Venue: The Muni Theatre, Colne

Two masterpieces of the chamber repertoire are featured in this concert. Brahms’ richly melodic quintet for clarinet and string quartet was one of a number of late works inspired by his meeting with the clarinettist Richard Muhlfeld. Written almost 100 years earlier, Beethoven’s Septet, scored for clarinet, bassoon, horn, and string quintet, was one of his most successful and popular works, transcribed for many different forces. It is an endlessly charming and lyrical work, hugely inventive and almost symphonic in scale.
