About The Music

In 1891, on the verge of retirement and abandoning composition altogether, Brahms heard the glorious playing of clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld. Captivated, he composed a series of late masterpieces including the Clarinet Trio in A Minor. Filled with warm musical colours and personal tributes, a friend commented to the composer that the instruments must be ‘in love’. In this spirit, Omega Ensemble presents three accompanying works written for, and dedicated to, the partnership of clarinettist David Rowden and pianist Maria Raspopova, including a world premiere work by US-based Australian composer Nicole Brady.
