Concert Overview | 8:00pm


Sonata for Clarinet and Piano in F minor, Op. 120 No. 1

Brahms had all but retired when he heard a young clarinettist whose playing was so beautiful that it sparked multiple new compositions from the composer, including this Clarinet Sonata.


String Quartet No. 3, Op. 94

His third and final string quartet, Britten returned to the form after more than 30 years of composing larger scale operas to create a quartet that is full of colors and contrasts.


Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in E minor, Op. 90 "Dumky"

“Dumky” are Hungarian dances that Dvorak used to create a piano trio that shares this nickname. He quickly shifts tempo from fast to slow, breaking away from the typical forms of the period.
