Last night saw Selby & Friends (Katherine Selby - Piano, Natalie Chee - Violin, Julian Smiles - Cello and Lloyd Van’t Hoff - Clarinet) performing a program titled “Tortured Souls” at MLC. The program consisted of:
Ludwig van Beethoven
Ten Variations on Müller’s Song “Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu”, Op.121(a)
Piano Trio No.3 in G minor, Op.110
Quatuor pour la fin du temps
It was the first time I had heard any of the above pieces and they were each fascinating music played brilliantly. The audience was spellbound. I need to listen to more Schumann.
