Discoveries? Whatever falls under this category rarely finds its way to wider audiences, and usually rightfully so. But sometimes excavations turn out to be worth it. Like in the case of composer Josef Suk, the “Gustav Mahler of Bohemia.” In his early Piano Quartet, he is still walking in the footsteps of Brahms and his father-in-law Dvořák while also remaining truly original. A rare gem of the repertoire – presented this evening by German pianist Severin von Eckardstein, who is known for unearthing hidden treasures and will be joining together with outstanding artists at the Festival Hall.
In contrast, the two other works on the program are long-time classics. This is especially true of Schumann’s E-flat-major Piano Quintet, with its famous funeral march. Janáček’s brief but intense Violin Sonata also forms part of the repertoire of every great violinist: the work reflects the outbreak of the First World War in the composer’s highly individual, terse and dramatic style.
