This concert looks like it will be a glorious celebration of chemistry, romance and love that will engage your senses and leave you breathless.
Brahms and Schumann were close friends and they were also both endeared and enamoured with their equal muse, Clara Schumann, a virtuoso pianist and composer in her own right.
Clara, the muse, is evident in all of Schumann’s music and his Fantasiestücke represents the unbridled passion found in the free imagination of the Romantic composer.
Borodin, besides being a composer, was also a chemist and a doctor. His String Quartet No. 1 demonstrates his love and passion for chamber music and displays his affinity for understanding form.
This string quartet is the perfect cohesion of musical ideas from a scientific mind.
The Omega Ensemble invites you to join them at their concert celebrating the most exquisite and sublime chamber music of the Romantic era, including the superlative Clarinet Quintet by Brahms.
