Festival: BBC Proms

Two of BBC Radio 3’s current New Generation Artists come together for a programme of chamber music spanning over 200 years. The Van Kuijk Quartet joins forces with clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe for Mozart’s lyrical Clarinet Quintet, whose expansive melodies and sunny A major key belie the struggles and sadnesses of his personal life. Webern’s Langsamer Satz (Slow Movement) is, by contrast, the ecstatic outpouring of a young man in love, happier than ever before and writing music once described as ‘Tristan and Isolde compressed into 11 minutes’. In his first string quartet, which today receives its world premiere, French composer and pianist Laurent Durupt explores contrasts both of musical material and musical time, and asks whether the differences are conflicting or complementary.
