LMP Chamber Ensemble at Turner Sims
Mozart Horn Quintet in E flat, K407
Mozart Clarinet Quintet in A, K581
Schubert Octet in F, D803
A joyful musical celebration courtesy of members of the London Mozart Players who make their second appearance at Turner Sims in their 70th anniversary year. The three works in the programme were all written with virtuoso performers in mind. Renowned clarinettists Anton Stadler and Ferdinand Troyer commissioned Mozart and Schubert respectively, with Schubert’s six movement octet being the largest chamber work the composer ever wrote. Mozart’s horn quintet, written for his longstanding friend Joseph Leutgeb, has been described by one critic as like a miniature concerto for horn in three movements.
