Red Cedar Chamber Music: Retracted Retirement
Red Cedar Chamber Music will be performing Retracted Retirement in Lisbon Library’s Heritage Hall.
The great composer Johannes Brahms briefly retired from composition in 1890 at the age of 57. However, after hearing clarinetist Richard Muhlfeld perform, he came out of retirement to write some of his greatest works, including his Clarinet Trio, two Clarinet Sonatas, and his Clarinet Quintet. The Quintet, an imposing four-movement work, is considered a masterpiece of composition and is central to the clarinet repertory. The program also includes Jewish Sketches Op. 12 by Alexander Krein, a colorful and spirited three-movement work.
