French chef at a German court in the 18th century. His highly
imaginative three oboe quartets are rooted in the Classical tradition
and are full of surprises. Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony
is one of his most heroically monumental works – rich in melodic
invention and vital rhythms. It is performed by the leading Siberian
symphony orchestra celebrating its 50th anniversary, led by a Russian
conductor steeped in Prokofiev’s music. The Brahms disc presents three of the chamber works Brahms wrote for the clarinet, which he loved. The two clarinet & piano sonatas here are both Romantic and vigorous at the same time. To view Audite Musikproduktion’s “About Us” page, Go Here. We will draw the names and contact the 12 winners by email March 1.
