BRAHMS QUINTET (article first published : 2006-12-26)

The popular Wouter String Quartet will join Joanne Rozario to play the beautifully romantic and autumnal Quintet by Brahms in a Music Revival Concert in Pietermaritzburg on January 7.

In 1890, the 57-year-old Brahms resolved to give up composing. He was unable to abide by his decision, and in the years before his death he produced a number of acknowledged masterpieces. His admiration for Richard Mühlfeld, clarinettist with the Meiningen orchestra, caused him to compose the clarinet quintet Op.115 (1891), together with the clarinet trio Op.114 (1891) and the two clarinet sonatas Op. 120 (1894). The quintet is complemented by charming and elegant Quartet by Crussell for clarinet and strings.

This concert will take place at 15h00 on January 7 at the St Georges Garrison Church in Pietermaritzburg. Tickets R60. Booking is essential through Music Revival on 033 342 3051 or e-mail: chris@musicrevival.co.za

Directions: from Loop Street into West Street, right into Burger, straight through at the traffic light and under the railway bridge into Devonshire Road. There is secure parking.

The concert is kindly sponsored by MR Woollam & Assoc., Pty (Ltd)
