Playing four classics from the chamber repertoire on the same number of historical clarinets, Australian-born Nicola Boud reveals how instrument design influenced the course of music, and vice versa.

Joined by a group of international period players, she performs the sparkling ‘Kegelstatt’ Trio, one of the masterpieces that grew from Mozart’s love for the newly invented clarinet and served to establish it as a concert instrument.

Schubert’s emotionally potent The Shepherd on the Rock is a gripping mini-opera for soprano, clarinet and piano, and Glinka’sTrio pathétique is a passionate work inspired by unrequited love.

Brahms’s love of the clarinet even brought him out of retirement for two late sonatas, the second of which is a masterpiece of introspective beauty.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
