From the Romantic era, the ensemble will share Johannes Brahms’ stormy Trio for clarinet, cello and piano, opus 114 and Carl Maria von Weber’s effervescent Trio in G minor for flute, cello and piano, opus 63. The Brahms, like a spring tempest or a lover’s quarrel, sets the rich timbres of the cello and clarinet against each other like rumbles of distant thunder. The lovers reconcile with the bright and energetic Weber featuring a dazzling flute melody.
Moving from the Romantic to contemporary Australian composition with works from the legendary Miriam Hyde and Sydney’s Kristofer Spike brings more delight and whimsy. Hyde’s Trio is one of her most playful works, while Spike’s Papillons evokes the fanciful dance of butterflies in the dawn light.
Put spring in your hearts with A Springtime Romance from The Hourglass Ensemble.
