3.3.18 Radius Ensemble: Impulse

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm


STRAUSS – Till eulenspiegel einmal anders! (arr. Hasenöhrl)
HOFFMAN – Music for Two Oboes
BRAHMS – Piano Quartet No. 3 in C minor, Op. 60

Brahms shelved his third piano quartet, first composed in his youth, for two decades before returning to finish it. The meaning of the work – and its emotional ties to Robert and Clara Schumann – is shrouded in mystery. Till Eulenspiegel – einmal anders is a masterpiece in miniature, an arrangement of Richard Strauss’s famous orchestral tone poem for just five instruments, and in half the time. Plus, American Joel Hoffman’s Music for Two Oboes, and a new work by the winner of the Pappalardo Composition Competition.
