Michael Berkeley Clarion Call and Gallop
Schubert Quintet in A major D 667 (Trout)
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. And we are more than delighted that Michael Berkeley himself will be here to give a pre-concert talk. This really is an event not to be missed!
