GROVE CLASSICS 2017: ASHLEY SMITH and FRIENDS
Sunday, June 25, 2017 - 5:00pm
Local clarinet hero Ashley William Smith is joined by some of Perth’s finest string players in a program centred around Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major. Composed in 1789, the quintet is regarded as one of the finest works of chamber music, much-loved by performers and audiences alike. Haydn’s “The Lark” String Quartet in D major dates from one year later, and enjoys a similar popularity for its soaring bird-like melody, dance-inspired minuet and energetic bubbling finale.
These two seminal works are set against Lachlan Skipworth’s deeply moving clarinet quintet “The Eternal”, heard here in its West Australian premiere.
