Brahms and the GypsyBrahms

Rabbit Hole Events presents… ZRI!

– the refinement of the classical concert stage mixed with tavern grit and gypsy flair –

Ben Harlan – clarinet
Max Baillie – violin
Matthew Sharp – cello
Jon Banks – accordion
Iris Pissaride – santouri

Faithfully re-imagined, ZRI presented one of Brahms’ best loved chamber music works, the Clarinet Quintet, in the form of a tavern ensemble of its time. Re-scored with a santouri and accordion for the rich folk band sounds that inspired the original piece itself, ZRI weaved in gypsy and klezmer music to present a concert from a time when classical and folk came from the same place.

This special event was held at the Dalston Old Boys’ Club, 68 Boleyn Rd, N16 8JG
