Virtuoso pianist and composer Clara Schumann (née Wieck) played many roles during the course of her life. As well as being one of the greatest performers of the 19th century, she was her husband Robert’s muse and creative partner. She also inspired and guided Brahms, who fell hopelessly in love with her as a young man, and maintained a professional relationship of the highest mutual respect with Mendelssohn. This programme presents works by Clara, and by two of the men to whom she gave her love, friendship and inspiration. Join us for an insight into the life of this remarkable woman.

May 17

Quintet in E flat major for piano and winds, K452 (Mozart);

Quintet in B flat major (Rimsky-Korsakov)

Sextet for piano and wind quintet, Op. 100 (Poulenc)

Three masterpieces of the chamber wind repertoire by three epoch-making composers. Mozart's sublime Quintet, K452, in his own opinion the best work I ever composed, combines the essence of Viennese Classicism with the composers distinctive operatic magnificence. Rimsky-Korsakov, one of the five composers who made up St Petersburgs Mighty Handful, brought his experience as an Inspector of Russias naval bands to bear on his writing for winds and brass. His exuberant and brilliantly colourful Quintet in B flat is all too rarely heard. The concert ends with Poulenc, leading member of Les Six, the unconventional group of composers active in 1920s Paris. All his flamboyant wit and wistful poetry is captured in the Sextet, Op. 100.
