BBC Proms Chamber Music

Petroc Trelawny presents a live recital from London's Cadogan Hall, with Michael Collins, Adrian Brendel and Michael McHale playing clarinet trios by Brahms and Zemlinsky. Celebrated British clarinettist Collins is joined by cellist Brendel and pianist McHale to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky. Charged with fin de siècle intensity and taut musical drama, the young Zemlinsky's Clarinet Trio was much influenced by Brahms, at whose recommendation it was published. A contemporary said of Brahms's own Trio in A minor that `it is as though the instruments are in love with each other". With its graceful waltz of an intermezzo and dashing finale with hints of Gypsy swagger, it's a musical love affair played out in glorious technicolour. Zemlinsky: Clarinet Trio in D minor, Op 3; Brahms: Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op 114. Michael Collins (clarinet), Adrian Brendel (cello), Michael McHale (piano).
