Kvintett - Schubert & Brahms Ålesund kammermusikkfestival 2021


Clarinetist Björn Nyman visited the Ålesund Chamber Music Festival in 2012, and we are very happy to have him back this year, in a concert program with the Ålesund String Quartet.

In 1824, Schubert wrote a sonata in A minor for piano and a then newly constructed instrument that later disappeared as a curiosity, the Arpeggione. This was in practice a guitar played on with a bow, and the name lives on today mainly thanks to Schubert's beautiful sonata! The arpeggio sonata is today played mainly on viola or cello, with piano, but in this concert Björn Nyman brings with him an adaptation of the work for clarinet and string quartet made by Schubert specialist Brian Newbould.

Johannes Brahms had in 1890, at the age of 57, publicly announced that he was retiring as a composer (!). But after hearing the clarinetist Richard Muhlfeld, Brahms was inspired to write both two clarinet sonatas, the clarinet trio and not least the clarinet quintet, which is one of his foremost chamber music works. This work is based on the structure of Mozart's clarinet quintet written more than 100 years earlier, i.a. with introduction with only strings and a final movement with theme and 5 variations. The character is completely different, however, and here you get all of Brahms' most thoughtful, mature and sweet sound.
