Concert: Ensemble Burletta Quintet
Brighten up your January with a sumptuous feast of music for clarinet and strings, performed by Ensemble Burletta: Mozart’s much loved and ever popular clarinet quintet, the exotic oriental tones of Glazunov, Jewish folk melodies and the sparkling and virtuosic clarinet quintet by Weber.
Mozart Clarinet Quintet in A major, K.581
Glazunov Rêverie Orientale
Krein Three Sketches On Hebrew Themes, Op. 12
Weber Quintet in B flat major, Op. 34
Exciting and innovative performers, Ensemble Burletta bring the very best chamber music for clarinet and strings to audiences across the UK and beyond. Their 2016 world premier recording of Gál’s clarinet quintet for Toccata Classics received glowing reviews in the Gramophone Magazine and Ensemble Burletta’s members have performed in the Wigmore Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Southbank Centre, the Barbican and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. They are delighted to be joined by violinist Lucy Russell (Fitzwilliam Quartet) for this concert.
