MOZART Piano Trio in B flat K502
STRAVINSKY A Soldier’s Tale Suite
BRAHMS Clarinet Trio
Marking clarinettist Matthew Hunt’s final appearance in Sheffield as a member of Ensemble 360, he appears in three pieces for this concert. Adès’s Catch is a series of intricate musical games and explosive new sounds for strings, clarinet and piano. Stravinsky’s narrative work, A Soldier’s Tale, features an enjoyable mix of styles including ragtime and klezmer to create a dramatic and melodic miniature epic. To end, one of Brahms’s later works, his Clarinet Trio providing a fitting conclusion to this fantastic concert.
