Mozart Quintet for piano and winds, K452 Mozart Horn Quintet in E flat, K407 Brahms Horn Trio in E flat, Op 40

A magical evening of chamber music. Felix Klieser, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Artist in Residence, is joined by pianist Danny Driver and principals of the orchestra.

Mozart composed his quintet for for piano, horn, oboe, clarinet and bassoon in 1784, a year in which he wrote six piano concertos. Mozart played piano for the first performance and wrote to his father afterwards that it was ‘…the best thing I have written so far in my life.’ Mozart’s Horn Quintet is scored for an unusual string combination including two violas. This gives it a deeper sonority than that of a regular string quartet. Full of gentle, amiable music, it has been compared to a miniature horn concerto: the horn frequently given a starring role.

Brahms’ Trio is regarded as one of his greatest chamber works. The instrumental combination (piano, horn, and violin) was almost unheard of before he wrote for it. Noble, with a hint of melancholy and mystery, it makes for a multi-faceted rather than a one-dimensional experience.

One of the most inspiring figures on the concert scene today. The Times on Felix Klieser
