A beautiful Sunday afternoon for Concert 2 featuring guest clarinetist Eric Abramovitz. We turn to Brahms, a composer, pianist, and conductor during the Romantic period firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters. The Clarinet Quintet is considered to be one of the most exquisitely beautiful pieces of chamber music ever written. Brahms’ writing for the clarinet is considered by many to be absolute perfection. Combined with the ensemble writing, this extraordinary piece highlights the glorious colours of each instrument.
This incredible rich tapestry of sound from the masters inspires and captivates the imagination. As a young composer, Gary Kulesha fell under the influence of many of the great composers of the past. Kulesha wrote his Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello when he was only 16 years old, at a time in which chamber music had a profound impact on his life, and ultimately his contribution to the evolution of the genre in the 20th Century and beyond.
