Join Ensemble Burletta on a journey from the Vienna of Mozart and Brahms, to the dark days of pre-war Austria and the flight of Jewish-born nationals from the Nazi regime. As part of the Insiders/Outsiders Festival, they perform works for clarinet and strings celebrating the musical links between Vienna and those that were forced to leave it for a new life in Britain. Music by Bach-Mozart, Brahms, and Jewish émigrés Hans Gál and Joseph Horovitz.
Bach-Mozart: Fugues no 4 and 5, KV 405
Gál: Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, Op. 107
Horovitz: Concertante for Clarinet and Strings
