Eilat Chamber Music Festival – Mozart and Brahms

London Mozart Players Chamber Ensemble

Mozart Clarinet Quintet K, 581 in A major
Brahms Clarinet Quintet Opus 115 I B minor

The London Mozart Players Chamber ensemble open the Eilat Chamber Music Festival 2022 with two famous clarinet quintets. Clarinet Quintets form a firm favourite in the chamber music catalogues, with the Brahms and Mozart quintets frequently performed and much loved. In both cases the composer was inspired by the playing of a great clarinettist: for Brahms it was Mühlfeldt, for whom he also wrote the two clarinet sonatas Opus 120, while Mozart’s inspiration came from Anton Stadler, who was also the fortunate recipient of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

In the spot where the desert meets the sea and the red mountains cast their shadow from above; at a meeting point between Asia and Africa, the greatest musicians from all over the world meet once a year to play music, give master-classes and workshops. Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city is its leading tourist resort, visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. The Eilat Chamber Music Festival was founded seven years ago by Leonid Rozenberg, who serves today as the artistic and general director of the festival. In its six years of existence, the festival hosted the best international and Israeli musicians, who gave exciting performances to music from the time of Monteverdi and until the very recent musical compositions.

The 14th Eilat International Chamber Music Festival will present renowned classical music artists from Europe alongside other established world-famous artists. This year, the festival is hosting two orchestras, famous soloists, programs of classical and Baroque music, jazz, music for various instruments, vocal music, with a rousing, foot-tapping Flamenco event to wind up the festival.
