18.30 pre concert talk, 19.30 concert.
The Goldfield Ensemble presents and evening of music for clarinet and strings, from neglected works to well loved pieces. Featuring the lesser-known and charming chamber music of Robin Milford, the programme also includes a new work from local composer Adam Pounds. Finzi's Prelude and Fugue is far too indiviudal a work to deserve meglect, with its vigourous and enganging fugue and a wonderfully assured conclusion. The Quintet by Brahms, possibly the greatest work of all for strings and clarinet, ends the programme.
The evening includes a pre-concert talk at 18.30 with composer Adam Pounds in conversation with Kate Romano.
The Goldfield Ensmeble acknowledges the support of the Robin Milford Trust and the Finzi Trust.
