On Friday, March 18, Southborough resident and clarinetist Peter Arvantely will perform a free concert at Pilgrim Church. The program will feature classical chamber music by Brahms, including:
- Sonata for Clarinet and PIano by Johannes Brahms, Opus 120 #1 in f minor
- Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, opus 120 #2 in Eb Major
- Trio for Clarinet, Piano, and Cello,opus 114
Arvantely said the three pieces are among the last composed by Brahms, who came out of retirement to write the works after hearing a particularly inspiring clarinet, Richard Muhlfeld, play in 1891.
The concert will also feature pianist Eric Stumacher and cellist Jacob MacKay. Stumacher’s brother Ian will join on violin for a movement from a Brahms trio for violin, cello, and piano.
The performance starts at 7:30 pm at Pilgrim Church. Admission is free, and all are invited.
