One of the earliest to compose in this genre was Johannes Brahms (German, 1833-1897), whose two clarinet sonatas are considered to be the best in the repertoire and established the clarinet-piano duo as a standard form. Brahms was fascinated by the beautiful tonal color of the clarinet, and his late clarinet works, including the Sonata No. 1 in F minor (1894) that will be heard on this program, contain some of his most beautiful and poignant melodies. … [Read more...] about “Extraordinary” Clarinet-Piano Duo Set to Perform February 23
