HOWELLS Rhapsodic Quintet (12’)
MOZART Clarinet Quintet K581(‘33)
Two starkly different clarinet quintets.
Howells’s mystical single movement Rhapsodic Quintet flows with a series of song-like melodies and is filled with poignancy and longing. In contrast, Mozart’s much-loved Clarinet Quintet makes use of the languid tones made possible by this (then new) instrument: by turns elegant, elegiac, enigmatic and exuberant.
