Program: Maurice Ravel:Introduction and Allegro for Harp, Flute, Clarinet and String Quartet
Clara Schumann convinced Brahms to re-orchestrate his pastoral D major Nonet Serenade to symphonic proportions. Nex’s reconstruction delights the listener through the intimacy of the intended nonet version, making it a perfect pairing to the witty and seldom heard E-flat nonet by Louise Farrenc. In displaying the full range of the double-action harp, Ravel’s “Introduction and Allegro” exploits the full expressive range of the solo harp. Don’t miss this great program influenced by a woman’s touch!
