Metamorphosis refers to a kind of dramatic internal change. Particularly within the Germanic tradition of composition, there is an absolute obsession with form and structure on both a micro and macro level. Composers at the end of the nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century were looking for ways in which to address the notion of development, and metamorphosis in their music. The collection of works in this program encapsulates something of the creative ingenuity of this period of composition that gave birth to many of the masterworks of the classical canon which are celebrated today.

Beethoven’s sunny and virtuosic Horn Sonata Op. 17 preludes a program that swiftly departs for stormier destinations. Two Brahms Sonatas follow, the dark and brooding Clarinet Sonata in F minor and the majestic masterpiece that is the Violin Sonata in A major.

Alban Berg’s Four Pieces for Clarinet and Piano are an early example of the composer’s extraordinary compositional ingenuity and are steeped in the sweeping emotional excesses of late-Romanticism. Anton Webern’s Variations for Piano are tiny little miniatures, a masterclass in quality versus quantity. Every little gesture contains a universe of meaning and expression. The performance ends with the broadest work on the program, the glistening triumph that is Brahms’ Horn Trio, Op. 40.

Ticket price includes a complementary drink and light refreshments at interval.
