Our final concert of the season sees us bidding farewell to Vienna with two pieces more than a century apart. We open with Beethoven's vivacious Quintet for Piano and Winds and follow it with Berg's dramatic set of Four Pieces for clarinet and piano, two contrasting works highlighting the incredible richness of Viennese culture. We then hint at beautiful things to come next season with the charming String Quartet No. 7 by Darius Milhaud and conclude with the effervescent Nonet by Martinů to welcome spring and say "adieu" to our time in Vienna. Don't miss this energetic and upbeat concert!
