In celebration of the 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, our traditional annual NCO Soloists concert gives our principal players the chance to enjoy some of the limelight and features one of his most celebrated chamber works. The Septet, scored for clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass, is one of Beethoven’s most successful and popular works – an uplifting piece of music that is rewarding and enjoyable for the musicians and audience alike. The concert also includes Baermann’s Adagio for clarinet and strings, the second movement of his Septet op 23, which is often performed as a stand alone piece, and Schubert’s Quartettsatz, the opening movement of a string quartet that he never finished but nonetheless feels complete and whole.
