Hommage to Robert Schumann
Robert Schumann's Fairy Tales for Clarinet, Viola and Piano, stormy and tender, set the mood for György Kurtág's deeply-felt Hommage to R. Sch., a work rich in allusions to the Romantic composer's fantastical alter egos Master Raro, Eusebius and Florestan. The programme concludes with Aram Khachaturian's exuberant Trio for Clarinet, Violin and Piano, based on Middle Eastern folk melodies.
