Chamber to Charleston
About The Music
At the start of the twentieth century, music throughout Europe was a melting pot of styles and influences, with composers holding on to traditions while also being influenced by popular music of the day. Omega presents a concert of diverse early twentieth century repertoire for Chamber Ensemble, from the Romantic flourishes of Ravel, to the dance inspired flavours of Martinů’s La Revue de Cuisine. Accompanying these works are Saint-Saens Septet and Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Quintet in A, K.581 performed by David Rowden on Basset Clarinet.
