The Mozart and Brahms Clarinet Quintets stand as two of the most luminous, soul-shatteringly beautiful pieces of chamber music ever composed. Mozart's has the sound of a single, drawn-out sigh, while Brahms gave us a half-hour of achingly autumnal backward glances - an extended reflection on what might have been. Both are shot through with the same musical and emotional DNA, and play like two sides of the same beautiful, fragile coin.
Sam Boutris, a rising star of the clarinet, will lead a crack team of string players in what promises to be a profoundly moving evening of music-making.
The water's warm...come with us and immerse yourself in the wondrous sound-world of these two magnificent masterworks.
