Brahms Clarinet Quintet in B minor

🎼🎶 Monday, September 20, 2021
At the age of 57, Johannes Brahms announced that he was retiring from composition, believing that his creative output had been exhausted. Then he met the clarinetist Richard Muehlfeld, and this led to a collaboration out of which emerged some of his greatest work:
the Opus 114 clarinet trio, the two clarinet sonatas, and the B minor clarinet quintet, as well as indirectly the sublime piano music opp. 116-119 and the Four Serious Songs, all composed after Brahms had “retired”.
Listen to this extraordinary recording of Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet in B minor, performed by the Amadeus Quartet with clarinetist Karl Leister.
