KREHL, S.: Clarinet Quintet, Op. 19 / String Quartet, Op. 17 (Wonkak Kim, Larchmere String Quartet)

Exclusively available on this website. The CD will become available for purchase starting January 2016.

Stephan Krehl is remembered for numerous influential textbooks on music theory, harmony and counterpoint written during his distinguished tenure at the Leipzig Conservatory. As a composer he unfashionably adhered to the late German Romantic tradition of Brahms and Schumann, his superbly crafted String Quartet Op. 17 covering every emotion from mystery and lyrical wistfulness to wit and dramatic passion. Krehl’s Clarinet Quintet is modelled on that of Brahms, but its content reveals a unique compositional voice filled with quixotic moods, expressive tenderness and extrovert theatricality.
