The Super Quintet
Among the most unique-sounding ensembles is the clarinet quintet, comprised of clarinet, two violins, viola, and cello. This instrumentation, while rare, has left a distinct mark on the classical chamber music repertoire. In this concert, join BFO musicians for a musical conversation to address this question: out of all the instruments to add to a string quartet, why did these composers choose the clarinet? Each movement has been carefully selected to create an almost entirely new clarinet quintet--the Super Quintet!
