Composers develop special affections for particular instruments. Chopin, best known for his virtuosic piano oeuvre, composed this rare bit of chamber music as an adolescent. Meanwhile, no composer has demonstrated greater love for the viola as a solo instrument than Paul Hindemith. Tonight, Dimitri Murrath interprets Hindemith’s first of many sonatas for the instrument, a romantically inflected work composed at the age of 24. Carl Maria von Weber, himself inspired by the charismatic virtuoso Heinrich Bärmann, favored the clarinet. Jon Manasse performs Weber’s concerto-like Clarinet Quintet, which blends the composer’s operatic style with instrumental brilliance.
