Isabelle Faust & friends

Because of his friendship with Anton Stadler, a famous clarinetttist at the imperial court of Vienna, Mozart gave the clarinet an increasingly important role in his compositions. Wolfgang’s superb clarinet quintet, written for clarinet and string quartet, is the first work for this combination in music history. A century later Brahms matched this gem with a romantic reply.

Chamber music to make you daydream, particularly in the hands of German violinist Isabelle Faust. With her exceptional technique and her unusual interpretations she is considered one of the leading violinists of her generation. The clarinet part will be taken care of by Lorenzo Coppola, who will amaze you with his natural and flexible handling of a period instrument.
