Brahms Clarinet Quintet

About

Zelenka — Sonata No. 5 for 2 Oboes, Bassoon & Continuo in F major
Sampson — Morning Music
Brahms — Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115

Disillusioned, Brahms was about to give up composing when he heard a performance by an extraordinary clarinetist whom he excitedly described as ‘the greatest wind player alive.’ This inspired the nostalgic, autumnal Clarinet Quintet, a work of unabashed sentimentality and grace.
