Sheffield's resident chamber musicians, Ensemble 360, present:
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
Join Ensemble 360 for the opening concert of Sheffield Chamber Music Festival, as they weave 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!
A Music in the Round performance, part of Sheffield Chamber Music Festival.
