Pēteris Vasks: Epifania for string orchestra
Anton Arensky: Quartet for violin, viola and two cellos
Johannes Brahms: Clarinet quintet
Tchaikovsky’s protégé Arensky writes a tribute which seems to carry a coded message about his master’s death; Brahms encodes his relationship with Clara Schumann into one of the most searing and soulful of all chamber works. And we round off our portrait of our distinguished composer-in-residence, Peteris Vasks, with a work for string orchestra which encapsulates the sheer beauty of his soundworld, Epifania.
