Early works by great composers

In this upbeat, virtuosic concert evening, the Vienna KammerOrchester, together with the Vienna Clarinet Connection and under the direction of its new principal conductor Jan Willem de Vriend, juxtaposes two masterful early works by Schubert and Brahms, as well as a composition long attributed to the young Rossini.
The instrumental piece in the operatic style of Introduction, Theme and Variations for Clarinet and Orchestra is considered one of the most popular virtuoso works for clarinet today. It has been suggested that Rossini may have composed it when he was about 18 years old, during his studies at the Bologna Conservatory. While this is not true, Rossini is nevertheless very much present in this work - for it uses musical material from his operas. Under the influence of Rossini's operas, which were very popular in Vienna at the time, the 20-year-old Schubert also composed his Ouverture in D major »in the Italian style« D 590 in November 1817. It is probably the first work that he presented to the public in a secular concert - and with great success. And Brahms was only a few years older when he created his imposing six-movement Serenade No. 1 in D major op. 11 for large orchestra in the struggle for an independent and contemporary approach to the symphonic genre - in confrontation with the works of Joseph Haydn and Beethoven.
