A chamber weekend offering two C major masterpieces by Mozart, as well as the frst in Beethoven’s series of late string quartets. Rubbing shoulders with Mozart’s Quintet K.515 is the romantic opulence of Schoenberg’s early ‘verklärte Nacht’ and the string sextet which begins Strauss’s late opera Capriccio. The haunting melancholy of Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet is countered by the Quartet No.1 of Jörg Widmann, one of the most admired among composers of today.
