HOWELLS Rhapsodic Quintet for clarinet and string quartet
BRAHMS Clarinet Trio Op.114
SCHUMANN Märchenerzählungen Op.132 for clarinet, viola and piano
HAYDN String Quartet Op.20 No.2
Emotions flow in this opening festival concert as Ensemble 360 weaves a story that travels from melancholy to joy.
Howells’ lyrical Quintet evokes an English way of life destroyed by the Great War. This paves the way for a rollercoaster ride from Brahms, whose Clarinet Trio conjures stormy scenes combined with serene moments of calm. The mood lightens with Schumann’s playful Fairy Tales, and the concert concludes with a Haydn quartet, packed with trademark eccentricity, wit and an abundance of cello solos!
All ticket-holders are invited to join us for a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink in the Crucible foyer after this concert.
