2017 Notable Encounter Insight: Brahms Clarinet Quintet
Cellist Jonah Kim led a discussion and exploration of one of Brahms’ final works, Clarinet Quintet in B minor, op. 115, written when he returned to composing after retirement. With its nods to Mozart and the classical realm, this work delivers the listener to a new Romantic world, where Brahms is a master. The performance also featured clarinetist Romie de Guise-Langlois, violinists Emily Daggett Smith and Aurelia Duca, and violist Caitlin Lynch.
