Zemlinsky Clarinet Trio in D minor, Op. 3 (27’)
Brahms Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114 (25’)
Michael Collins clarinet
Adrian Brendel cello
Michael McHale piano
Celebrated British clarinettist Michael Collins is joined by cellist Adrian Brendel and pianist Michael McHale to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky. Charged with fin de siècle intensity and taut musical drama, the young Zemlinsky’s Clarinet Trio was much influenced by Brahms, at whose recommendation it was published.
A contemporary said of Brahms’ own Trio in A minor that ‘it is as though the instruments are in love with each other’. With its graceful waltz of an intermezzo and dashing finale with hints of Gypsy swagger, it’s a musical love affair played out in glorious technicolour.
