BRAHMS Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115

Ensemble 360 is the resident ensemble of Music in the Round, who play in a variety of combinations up to eleven musicians in total, allowing the possibility of programming interesting works which are rarely heard. This concert is a good example, featuring sextets which were composed just two years apart, and yet with sound-worlds which could not be more different. Indeed the Dohnányi is far more similar in style to Brahms, and this is a work that truly merits the label of ‘unjustly neglected masterpiece’. The Brahms on the other hand needs no introduction as this is perhaps the most famous of all his chamber works.

The clarinettist [Matthew Hunt] played so beautifully it was as though he wished to make the very air of the hall melt." – Tokyo Times
