Event description

Description

Pacifica Quartet with Jörg Widmann, clarinet
The exuberant, Grammy-winning Pacifica joins forces with German composer and clarinetist Jörg Widmann, well-matched partners for the striking works you’ll hear in this concert. Widmann’s dramatic, sinister “Jagdquartett” is a grimly ironic scherzo channeling the intensity and chaos of the hunt, and the pyrotechnical brilliance of the Weber Clarinet Quintet is breathtaking.
