Robert Schubert (clarinet), Josephine Vains (cello), Robert Chamberlain (piano), in a varied and highly contrasted program of chamber music, ranging from the Baroque conversational sensibility of J S Bach's Gamba Sonata in G, performed on modern instruments, through the Romantic exuberance of Bruch's pieces for clarinet, cello and piano, to the brooding passion and end-of-century energy of the little known Trio Op. 3 by Zemlinsky! Plus works by Australian composer Julian Yu and an amusing selection from Hindemith's Musikalisches Blumengartlein und Leyptziger Allerley for clarinet & cello.
