The Clarinet Chronicles - Brahms on the Bluff

Brahms’s love affair with the clarinet brought him out of retirement to compose two works, the Clarinet Trio, op. 114, and the Clarinet Quintet, op. 115. Their autumnal qualities complement the program’s two gentle Songs with Viola, op. 91.

In a special pre-concert program at 2:15 p.m., music students from Duquesne University explore the “Muhlfeld connection,” the relationship between Brahms and Richard Muhlfeld, the foremost clarinetist of the composer’s era.

Musique on the Bluff: The End of Time
A co-production with Celebration Messiaen (honoring the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth)
PNC Recital Hall, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Messiaen's monumental "Quartet for the End of Time" was written while the composer was in a German POW camp during World War II. Saturated with Catholic mysticism and visions of the Apocalypse, it shows Messaien's obsessions with birdcalls, music as color and complex rhythms, and is truly one of the masterpieces of 20th-century music. The program also includes the early Variations for Violin and Piano, written for the composer's wife, a violinist herself.
