REBECCA CLARKE Prelude, Allegro and Pastorale for clarinet and viola
BEETHOVEN String Trio Op.9 No.1 in G
RAVEL Sonata for violin and cello
MOZART Clarinet Quartet in B flat Op.79 No.1 (after K.378)
Ensemble 360 offer a fascinating blend of pieces that reveal the remarkable range of harmonic richness that can be achieved even by small instrumental combinations. Ravel’s Sonata for violin and cello took a full year to write and is full of innovation and invention. Rebecca Clarke, herself a fine viola player, wrote her genial neoclassical duo for clarinet and viola in the USA in 1941. Beethoven’s effervescent String Trio dates from his early years in Vienna and Mozart’s Violin Sonata K.378 is here played in an engaging arrangement from 1799 by Johann André.
