As part of its Chamber Music Cycle, the Auditorio de Tenerife is offering the concert Anhelos by Quantum Ensemble.
Beyond historic and geographic considerations, this programme presents four works of music that take us back to music itself: rhythms and harmonies, melodies and motifs which are gradually developed and confirmed throughout works with a lot of substance, which provide the listener with a very varied experience.
The concert will begin with the performance of Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (The Shepherd on the Rock), a famous Lied by Schubert for soprano, clarinet and piano whose poems were written by the poets Karl August Varnhagen von Ense and Johann Ludwig Wilhelm Müller, the latter was the author of Die schöne Müllerin (The Fair Maid of the Mill) and Winterreise (Winter Journey).
The Quantum is once again making room for the Trio for clarinet, cello and piano by Johannes Brahms, one of the few existing pieces for this group and one of the four chamber works that Brahms composed for clarinet when he had already retired, inspired by the famous clarinet player Richard Mülfeld.
Between tradition and modernity sits Nachtstück (Nocturne) for clarinet, violoncello and piano by Widmann, work that gets close to the sensitive, and at times dramatic, character of Trio op. 114 by Brahms.
To finish, the Quantum Ensemble is once again integrating a musical arrangement into their programme, this time by Pablo Díaz Sánchez, which will make it possible to listen to a chamber version of the great work by Richard Strauss, Vier letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs), which concludes a concert formed by pieces that offer truly stimulating stylistic contrasts.
