Eight Pieces, Op. 83 Vol.1

  • Bruch, Max
Detailed Instrumentation: Clarinet, Viola and Piano

Bruch was 72 in 1910 when he composed Acht Stücke (Eight Pieces), Op. 83 for his son, Max Felix, already a professional clarinetist. Bruch was certainly aware of the primary works for this formation of Clarinet, Viola and Piano – Mozart’s Kegelstatt-Trio, Schumann’s Mârchenerzaülungen (Fairy Tales), and Brahms’ Trio Op. 114. The Eight Pieces shine with Bruch’s lyricism and each has its particular charm. Written in a late but conservative Romantic style, far removed from the language of contemporaries Stravinsky, Bartók, and Schoenberg, they are much more than short miniatures for the salon. Deep, intense, passionate, and intimate, this music requires talented chamber musicians who understand each other.
