Cobbett’s Legacy I: In the Shadow of Brahms

The Berkeley Ensemble

Knussen: …upon one note…
Hurlstone: Phantasie for string quartet in A minor
Bridge: Phantasie for piano quartet in F-sharp minor
Stanford: Fantasy for clarinet and string quartet in F
Brahms: Clarinet Quintet

Join the Berkeley Ensemble as they begin their exploration of 20th Century British chamber music in a series of concerts and events celebrating Walter Willson Cobbett, who forged a school of British chamber composition from Bridge to Turnage and beyond.

Walter Willson Cobbett (1847-1937) was a philanthropist of great importance during the so-called English Musical Renaissance. Through his sponsorship of emerging composers of the day, he helped to forge a British school of chamber composition inspired by that of the first Renaissance. Cobbett’s Legacy explores the music sponsored by Cobbett – both famous and forgotten – across three concerts at The Forge.

When Cobbett set up his first competition for chamber composition in 1905, Brahms was the model for most composers working in Britain at the time. Cobbett’s competition was conceived to stimulate a distinct British school of composition based on the example of the first Renaissance and in particular, the single-movement viola fantasias of composers such as Purcell, Jenkins and Morley.
