Ensemble 360: Barnsley

30/11/2018
Emmanuel Church, Barnsley, Huddersfield Road Barnsley S75 1DT United States

Brahms String Quartet in C minor, op. 51, no. 1
Laurence Osborn new work – world premiere
Korngold Piano Quintet op. 15

The incredible musicians of Ensemble 360 return to Barnsley and this time they bring with them a world first; a new piece written by a rising young composer, Laurence Osborn. They also play an old favourite by Brahms which is one of the first pieces for string quartet that Brahms was willing to have published; and only then after a period of revision and immense self-doubt. The lavish musical style of Korngold’s famous Hollywood scores is pre-dated by this wonderful piano quintet in which distinct traces of the late Romantic works of Elgar and Rachmaninov can be detected. Ensemble 360 is also delighted to feature a world première (commissioned by The Royal Philharmonic Society) by rising young composer Laurence Osborn who has already written for the London Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Ensemble 360: Sheffield

01/12/2018
Upper Chapel, Norfolk Street Sheffield S1 2JD England

Brahms String Quartet in C minor, op. 51, no. 1
Laurence Osborn new work
Korngold Piano Quintet op. 15

The two beautiful Opus 51 quartets were the first works for this formation that Brahms was willing to publish, though only after a period of immense self-doubt and revision. Each is conceived on the same grand scale that characterises Brahms’ symphonic writing. The lavish style of Korngold’s famous Hollywood scores is pre-dated by his wonderful piano quintet in which distinct traces of the late Romantic works of Elgar and Rachmaninov can be detected.
