After hearing the performance of a now-storied clarinet virtuoso, Brahms came out of retirement to write the clarinet trio featured on this concert. The programme opens with Beethoven’s Piano Trio in E-flat major, Op. 1, No. 1—the work he chose to announce himself to the music world—and closes with an exuberant Dvorak piano quartet.

1 December 2023 (Friday), 8pm
CMS’s Artistic Directors take the spotlight in this special concert, opening with Debussy’s iconic Cello Sonata. Classics of the cello-piano repertoire by Brahms and Shostakovich alternate with pieces written for David and Wu Han by two of today’s leading composers, Bruce Adolphe and Pierre Jalbert.

2 December 2023 (Saturday), 8pm
This programme begins with Beethoven’s “Ghost” Trio, reportedly inspired by the witches’ scene from Macbeth, and continues with Weber’s virtuoso showpiece for clarinet accompanied by string quartet. Fauré’s Piano Quartet No. 1, an early-career masterpiece, tells an emotional story of heartbreak and affirmation.
