Haydn Piano Trio Gipsy Rondo 15′
Mozart Clarinet Quintet in A K581 35′
Schubert Piano Quintet in A D667 40′
Two perennial favourites of the classical music repertoire sit side-by-side; Schubert’s irrepressible high spirits and elfin charm follows Mozart at his most lyrical, expansive and – particularly in his gorgeous hushed slow movement – his most profound. Overflowing with memorable melodies, neither piece has lost its power to inspire and move us. Haydn’s bucolic high spirits provide an appropriate companion-piece. One of Britain’s foremost chamber groups are ideal interpreters, a peerless collective of musicians steeped in this music yet always revealing something fresh and enticing.
