Today’s concert will doubtless stir the hearts of more than just chamber music lovers: one of the world’s finest pianists and a legendary string quartet join forces to present a program of pure chamber music classics.
Each work is a musical celebration, beginning with Mozart’s famous Piano Quartet in G minor. As we know, Mozart’s most beautiful works are usually in the key of G minor; the Piano Quartet is the very first example of the genre and already one of its high points.
Gabriel Fauré is not nearly as well known in Germany as he deserves to be. And while we’re still speaking in superlatives, the composer’s first piano quartet is one of the most famous works of its kind ever written – a splendid composition that gave the Fauré Quartet its name.
