Mozart and Schubert
Ella Taylor, Robin Ireland & Ensemble 360

Mozart: Ach, ich fühl’s! (from The Magic Flute)
Mozart : String Quintet No.4 in G minor K516
Trad. Se solen sjunker (Swedish folksong)
Schubert :Piano Trio No.2 in E flat

Music in the Round is delighted to welcome Robin Ireland back to the Crucible, a venue he knows so well from his years as violist with the Lindsay String Quartet.

Robin will join Ensemble 360 for one of Mozart’s finest chamber works, his String Quintet in G minor. It’s a work that’s rich in drama, the hallmark of one of the greatest opera composers, and a delicate aria from Mozart’s The Magic Flute will lead straight into the Quintet.

Schubert’s Second Piano Trio was one of the final pieces he completed before his death at the young age of 31. It’s a work of incredible emotional depth, with its most famous melody, frequently used in soundtracks for film and television, inspired by a traditional Swedish folksong.

Saint-Saëns. The Renaissance Man

Saint-Saëns:
Morceau de concert for horn and piano
Bassoon Sonata
Les odeurs de Paris
L’assassinat du duc de guise
The Carnival of the Animals

Camille Saint-Saëns’ most celebrated work, ‘The Carnival of the Animals’ is a work unlike any other, transporting the listener into a musical menagerie that includes a swan, a tortoise, lions and a plunge into a truly magical aquarium. It is presented here alongside rarely performed pieces including ‘Les odeurs de Paris’, a musical riot, with the addition of trumpets and children’s toys to convey the many smells of Paris. Early French film The Assassination of the Duke of Guise is one of the very first to feature an original film score. Written by Saint-Saëns, the music will be performed live alongside a screening of the film in a celebration of the beloved French composer.
