Teddington Summer Music's first concert features two fo the most richly expressive and best-loved works in the chamber music repertoire. Dvorak's American String Quartet was written during an extended stay in the Unites States, shortly after the completion of his New World Symphony. It abounds in melody and good humour, reflecting the composer's personal happiness at that time.
After more than 200 years, Mozart's Clarinet Quintet remains one of the greatest works for this combination of instruments, and the endlessly inventive musical ideas and changing moods after a life-affirming experience. The programme begins with Baermann's gloriously serene Adagio for clarinet and strings.
The musicians will be Madeleine Michell, Gordon Mackay, Kate Musker, Joseph Spooner and Tony Lamb
Presented by Langdon Down Centre
