VIGNERY Sonata for Horn and Piano
BRAHMS Clarinet Sonata in F minor 
ROBERT SCHUMANN Fantasiestücke Op.73 
REINECKE Trio for Clarinet, Horn and Piano 

Brahms’s harmonious Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, one of the great masterpieces in the clarinet repertoire, is performed alongside Schumann’s exuberant, playful and romantic ‘fantasy pieces’. This is also a rare chance to hear Vignery’s tuneful and spirited sonata for horn and piano, and Reinecke’s trio, which continues the exploration of the fantastical, passing hunting call-like melodies between the clarinet and horn, to a thrilling, galloping climax.

BACH Goldberg Variations BWV988  
arr. for string trio 

The Goldberg Variations are rightly hugely popular. First written for harpsichord and best known to modern audiences as a work for piano, here they are arranged for string trio. In this form, the intricacy of counterpoint and the spirituality of this monumental musical structure are brought to the fore through the conversational interplay between the instruments. These hour-long concerts are not to be missed.

Marking clarinettist Matthew Hunt’s final appearance in Sheffield as a member of Ensemble 360, he appears in three pieces for this concert.  Adès’s Catch is a series of intricate musical games and explosive new sounds for strings, clarinet and piano. Stravinsky’s narrative work, A Soldier’s Tale, features an enjoyable mix of styles including ragtime and klezmer to create a dramatic and melodic miniature epic. To end, one of Brahms’s later works, his Clarinet Trio providing a fitting conclusion to this fantastic concert.

HOWELLS, COLERIDGE‐TAYLOR & ELGAR

Ensemble 360

The Guildhall, Portsmouth

Monday 31 January 2022
7.30pm

Tickets £18

Book Tickets
Naomi Atherton (horn)

HOWELLS Rhapsodic Quintet
COLERIDGE‐TAYLOR Nonet in F minor, Op. 2
ELGAR Piano Quintet in A minor, Op. 84

An enterprising all‐British programme which features Elgar’s wonderful late piano quintet, composed at the same time as the Cello Concerto, and inhabiting some of the same mood.

Samuel Coleridge‐Taylor studied at the Royal College of Music where his composition teacher was Stanford, and one of his main musical influences was Dvořák. He had enormous success with the cantata Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast, but some of his finest works are actually his early chamber pieces. Howells was very influenced by Elgar who was 35 years his senior, and this piece for clarinet and strings shows the strong melodic impulse which is characteristic of his music.
