Liebesfreud will be on top of the world this "Last Friday" when we ascend to the Roof Garden of the Kimmel Center for what promises to be a most memorable concert. We've been looking forward to this since first we had the pleasure of Ricardo Morales's collaborative artistry in Mozart's Clarinet Quintet in 2006 (on Mozart's 250th Birthday).
This time it's the Clarinet Quintet of Brahms, a late work and a supreme masterpiece in the chamber music literature.
Opening this one-hour program will be two short but stunning String Quartet works, also written toward the end of their composers' all-too-short lives.
Liebesfreud quartet members and all guest artists offer their services without fee so that, since the beginning of 2006, all concerts in this "Last Fridays" Series have been open to the public with absolutely no admission charge. Some members of our audience do contribute to a "Hall Rental Fund" (which helps defray such costs) and to those kind and loyal music lovers we extend our sincere thanks and appreciation.
