Berwald   Grand Septet in B flat
Mozart   Clarinet Quintet in A K581
Beethoven   Septet in E flat Op 20

 

The Swedish composer Franz Berwald wrote his Grand Septet in 1828, the year after Beethoven died. He had completed his Septet in 1823, just before he embarked on his late string quartets. Between these two works is another opportunity to meet Ensemble 360’s new clarinettist in Mozart’s sublime Quintet.

This young ensemble came together by invitation from the CBSO and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire to perform Dvořák’s Piano Quintet at Symphony Hall. The quintet performed at St Phillip’s Cathedral in Birmingham and in the ‘Resonations’ series in Leicester, winning the Leamington Music Prize just a day prior to the Symphony Hall debut. This is a truly European group – violinists from Poland and Portugal, viola also from Portugal, cellist from Leicester and a Scottish pianist – and long may such collaborations continue.
