Monday 8 February at 7.30pm – live stream
Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904) – Piano Quartet No. 2 in E flat major Op. 87
Franz Schubert (1797-1828) – The Trout D667
By the time Dvořák composed his Piano Quartet in E flat he was an international celebrity, feted by the German and English musical establishments. It was composed during July and August 1889, and the inspiration seems to have flowed easily; Dvořák wrote ‘The melodies just surged upon me’. Our Chamber Ensemble in Residence also performs one of the absolute classics of the chamber music repertory, Schubert’s ‘Trout’ Quintet.
