Emma Johnson & Friends – the ensemble led by the outstanding clarinettist and one of the UK’s best-selling classical artists. Composed in 1800, Beethoven’s Septet is one of the cornerstones of the chamber repertoire. Caught on the cusp between the Classical era and fast-emerging Romanticism, as Robert Matthew-Walker’s booklet essay notes, 'it abounds in felicitous light fancy and delicious invention… standing apart as a work of unquestionable independence of expression, already looking towards the initial decades of the new century'. The Septet was the first work to pair clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass, its six movements 'filled with sunny gaiety” (Matthew-Walker again) and realised here with exquisite delicacy and definition by Johnson in the company of the Carducci String Quartet, Peter Francombe (horn), Philip Gibbon (bassoon) and Christ West (double bass).For clarinet and string quartet, the Introduction, Theme and Variations, originally thought to have been Carl Maria Weber’s but now ascribed to Joseph Küffner, boasts an 'inherent musicality and the beauty...demonstrate quite clearly that this beautiful piece is well worth the attention.'
