Hidden Gems, Arrangements, and New Commissions
April 30 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$10.00 - $25.00
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.
