Concert 3 - Forties

Sunday 23 May 2021 at 11am

Our 1940s concert takes us to the stars and back. Weinberg’s clarinet sonata glances at Shostakovich, before a detour to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time provides a last word on these tumultous decades, and on music’s great power of transcendence.

Lloyd van’t Hoff (clarinet), Konstantin Shamray (piano)
