About This Performance

Music stands out in the fine arts for its ability to convey movement in time. It even manages to express the fluidity of the minutes passing. On this inventive program, the funeral march in Tchaikovsky’s lush, romantic third quartet brings an immediately palpable sense of passage. From Amber Frozen follows a changing world through the endurance of a preserved insect. And Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet is among the great autumnal masterworks—a piece of extraordinary emotional depth, which seems to bring us to the very end of time.
