While we don’t know for whom Beethoven wrote his Sextet for Horns and String Quartet, it’s clear he had two masterful horn players in mind.

The work is a perfect platform for our musicians as they meet the challenge of this energetic and exuberant music.

Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, while more tranquil, is equally uplifting. One of the first influential pieces to feature the then still-new clarinet, this music has an exuberance and extraordinary emotional depth that is pure musical delight.
