Paul Juon & Johannes Brahms

For the second concert of this season at St Cuthbert’s Church, join us for an evening of chamber music for clarinet, cello and piano.

In the summer of 1891, Johannes Brahms ended his self-imposed retirement from composing by penning a trio for clarinet, cello and piano in A minor. The process of composing the trio reignited Brahms’ creative fire and marked the beginning of his “late” period; a rich output full of autumnal colours and moods, passionate yet deeply profound. At the same time a young Russian-Swiss composer, Paul Juon, was embarking on a career in music having just graduated from the Moscow Conservatory, where his classmates included Rachmaninoff and Scriabin. It was Rachmaninoff that affectionally nicknamed Juon “the Russian Brahms”.

The Aeolian Trio invite you to this musical dialogue between Brahms’ mature clarinet Trio op 114 and Juon’s lesser known but very attractive early Trio Miniaturen op 18. Programme will also include Beethoven’s uplifting “Gassenhauer” Trio op 11, written in 1797, which no doubt both Brahms and Juon used as a reference when creating their clarinet trios.

Performers
Aeolian Trio:
Urška Horvat – cello
Matthew Wilsher – clarinet
