Album information

Clarinettist Lesley Schatzberger and the Fitzwilliam String Quartet present a new recording of works by Brahms, Mozart, Glazunov and Sweeny.

 At the centrepiece of this programme is the Brahms Clarinet Quintet in B minor, which in their hands carries particular historical significance. Brahms was originally inspired to write the Quintet after hearing clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld perform. Lesley Schatzberger performs on a specially-made copy made of Mühlfeld's own clarinet and the performers adhere to certain aspects of performance practice which were in favour at that time, while embracing Brahms's attitude to rhythm, tempo, and rubato creating a truly authentic feel.

The programme also includes a rare Mozart quintet movement in B flat major, completed by Duncan Druce, which is one of several unfinished Mozart works which are still being realised today, as well as Glazunov's haunting Rêverie Orientale and An Òg-Mhadainn (The Young Morning) by Scottish contemporary composer William Sweeney.
