Intense opening concert

V International Chamber Music Festival Joaquín Turina. 

Brahms Trio Op.114 (José Luis Estellés, clarinet; Gary Hoffman, violoncello; Benedicte Palko, piano). Venue: Casa Salinas. Date: September.

[…] That wonderful autumnal essentiality of late Brahms emerged from Trio op.114 thanks to a melancholic and profound performance (beautiful Hoffman’s low register) and also to a stylized -and for moments fragile- sobriety (Estellés’s clarinet almost diluted in the silence when the milder dynamics in the first movement), a very substantial balance and an extremely delicate phrasing.
