Romantic Visions

Beethoven’s Septet in E flat major, Op.20 was first performed at an aristocratic tea party in 1800. Filled with Mozartean charm and elegance, the piece has gone on to become one of the most popular septets ever written. It cleverly explores the vast array of colour created through the intriguing and unique scoring of clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass, and is coupled with the ever-popular Trio élégiaque No.1 in G minor by Rachmaninoff, written when he was 19 years old. Also included is Cimarosa’s Concerto for Clarinet and Strings. Originally for oboe, this delightful work is reimagined to showcase the virtuosic and lyrical side of the clarinet.
