The music that composers write later in life is often the most profoundly beautiful and heartfelt of all. Brahms had effectively retired from composing when he went on a late binge of compositions for the clarinet and viola inspired by the artistry of a dear friend. Saint-Saëns, surrounded by a musical world of modernism, pens a very Proustian look back at a musical style from his youth. Françaix was 80 when he wrote his rollicking and virtuosic trio bringing up the adage “Music is the place where we never grow old.” The Clarke is just an astonishing piece for clarinet and viola, and we couldn’t resist!
