OF the music of Spohr. once one of the most popular Composers in Europe. little is now heard in public, though fiddlers rightly cherish his notable works for their instrument.
His Quartets almost all lay too much emphasis on the solo side of Violin playing, but in his Duets there is now and again some admirably-balanced four-part work-when each of the two instruments plays in ' double stopping,' that is, in chords of two notes. Of that kind of writing this Duet in E Flat (his Op. 39, No. 2) contains a good example, of some extent.
BRAHMS much admired the playing of Richard Muhlfeld , a Clarinetist in the orchestra at Meiningen, and after becoming friendly with this artist, he wrote several works having an important part for the Clarinet. The Trio was first played at Meiningen in 1896, by Brahms. Muhlfeld , and Hausmann, the 'Cellist.
There are four Movements, full of grace and power.
