The Romantic Soul returns in 2017, continuing to feature overlooked corners of the romantic repertoire.
Stewart Kelly & Friends continues to feature overlooked corners of the romantic repertoire. In this recital, they focus on that most romantic of instruments: the clarinet.
Marc Delmas’ Fantasie Italiene is a lyrical showpiece that is inexplicably ignored in the repertoire. It is paired against the romances for cello and piano of Italian composer Giuseppe Martucci and anchored by two trios – the magnificent masterpiece that is Brahms’ late clarinet trio and the 20th-century jazz inspired work of Muczynski. The friends joining Stewart Kelly for this performance are superb clarinet virtuoso Justin Beere and cellist Rebecca Proietto.
