The exuberant, Grammy-winning Pacifica joins forces with German composer and clarinetist Jorg Widmann, well-matched partners for the striking works you’ll hear in this concert. Widmann’s dramatic, sinister “Jagdquartett” is a grimly ironic scherzo channeling the intensity and chaos of the hunt, and the pyrotechnical brilliance of the Weber Clarinet Quintet is breathtaking.

HAYDN

Quartet in G major, op. 76, no. 1, HIII: 75

WIDMANN

String Quartet no. 3 (“Jagdquartett”)

WEBER
