Armida Quartett (string quartet) & Jörg Widmann (clarinet)


Hunt Quartets and a dream

The Armida Quartett had a dream: to play Carl Maria von Weber’s Clarinet Quartet with Jörg Widmann. The wish turned out to be mutual.

This 1815 quintet for strings and clarinet is overshadowed by renowned counterparts by Brahms and Mozart, but is definitely worth discovering
