THE WHITEWAY STRING
QUARTET:
Philip Whiteway (violin); David Curry (violin); Margaret Huxley (viola);
Carrodus Taylor (violoncello)
HARRY DYSON (flute)
RICHARD WALTHEW (clarinet)
TINA BONIFACIO (harp)
Mozart's Clarinet Quintet in A has always been known as the ' Stadler-quintet', since it was composed by Mozart for his friend and crony, Anton Stadler. a celebrated clarinet player. The quintet ranks very high in Mozart s chamber music, as high, some musicians think, as the two quintets for strings composed in the last two years of Mozart's life, when his powers were at their most mature.
Introduction and Allegro, for string quartet, flute, clarinet, and harp Ravel
Ravel wrote this little work in 1906. It is in effect a concerto for the harp, with accompaniment for strings, flute, and clarinet.
The woodwind instruments blend extremely well with the harp, making many beautiful varieties of brightly coloured tone, which shows up against the rich background of the strings.
In the slow Introduction bits of two tunes are used-one first heard on flute and clarinet, and the other on strings. A 'cello strain (rather quicker) repeated by violins, leads into the quick movement.
The harp takes up the second tune of the Introduction. Woodwind has this, and' then, after a climax and an arpeggio on the harp, a third main tune nppears (flute and clarinet with plucked strings accompanying). The lilting rhythm of this tune is used a good deal throughout the piece.
