|Beethoven||Septet in E flat major op 20|
The Berkeley Ensemble presents two of the most famous chamber works of the First Viennese School together in one concert. Schubert’s ever popular Trout Quintet and Beethoven’s Septet both broke new ground in their unusual scoring, whilst Michael Berkeley follows Beethoven’s instrumental plan in his recent Clarion Call and Gallop, written for the Berkeley Ensemble in 2013.
The refined playing had an impressive sense of style
A delight … warmly communicative and commendably polished readings
We regret that for personal & family reasons Michael Berkeley has had to cancel the pre-concert talk previously advertised.
