Rebecca Clarke was an eminent viola player and part-time composer, and unquestionably highly regarded and respected. Her music is influenced by Ravel, Vaughan Williams and Stanford, and is both attractive and accessible. With Mozart‘s irresistible Clarinet Quintet to follow and the rousing and passionate G minor Piano Quartet by Brahms to round out SMF Chamber Series 2023, this program has something to suit every musical taste.
