Description

Scottish Ensemble unleash the power of chamber music through the clarinet quintets of Mozart and Brahms, with guest soloist Matthew Hunt.



Mozart
Clarinet Quintet in A major

Brahms
Clarinet Quintet in B minor

John Luther Adams
The Wind in High Places [movement 2]

Mozart and Brahms wrote just one clarinet quintet each, both in the final years of their lives. But it’s their inherent quality and charm, not only their solitary status, which has always made these quintets stand out amongst each composer’s repertoire.

Mozart’s is now not only one of his best-known pieces, but one of the most cherished in the clarinet repertoire, and it’s easy to see why: moments of understated virtuosity bloom from a soft, calm, mellow beauty. Brahms’ quintet – modelled on Mozart’s, as so many of his works are – is similarly autumnal in mood, with waves of contemplative major and melancholic minor moods shifting like sunlight.

Join Scottish Ensemble musicians and one of the UK's most distinctive clarinettists, Matthew Hunt, as they explore both works at this afternooon concert in the impressive surrounds of the Crichton Church, at Dumfries' Easterbrook Hall.
