Hidden Gems, Arrangements, and New Commissions

May 1, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$10.00 - $25.00
An afternoon of music by Mozart, von Weber, Spohr, Glazunov, Golijov, de Falla, Tchaikovsky, and Cannon performed by the Farallon Quintet

The clarinet quintet genre—string quartet plus clarinet—was first created by Mozart when he wrote the beloved Quintet in A Major in 1789. Since then many composers followed suit: there are more than 600 clarinet quintets that are mostly unknown to audiences.

Farallon Quintet was formed in 2012 with a mission to introduce audiences to the rich, yet relatively unfamiliar, clarinet quintet repertoire with hidden gems, new composer commissions, and innovative arrangements.
