Schubert: Shepherd on the Rock
Brahms: Trio for clarinet, cello and piano
Songs by Schubert
World renowned clarinettist Julian Bliss joins us for the last day of the festival, performing two concerts. Brahms had all but given up composing when he discovered the sound of the clarinet: the result was a clutch of late, glorious chamber works for that instrument, including the quintet (tonight) and this trio. Tempestuous and amorous by turn, the trio exploits the warm combination of clarinet, cello and piano.
Soprano Ailish Tynan presents a set of Schubert songs, culminating in his joyful Shepherd on the Rock, where voice and clarinet weave together as lovers look forward to being reunited in spring.
