Brahms Clarinet Quintet

We must all be grateful that Brahms came out of self-imposed “retirement” to compose his four late masterpieces that have made him especially beloved of clarinetists, with this Quintet often regarded as his greatest chamber music achievement. The instrument’s sweet tone evokes moods of melancholy and serenity with an exquisitely dark palette that blends beautifully with the strings—all brought out superbly by our Artist-in-Residence Anthony McGill and the musician-artists of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
