Acclaimed Singapore-born pianist Melvyn Tan joins Concordia Quartet for a lavish evening of music written in the late 19th century and beyond.
Considered heretical as a pre-Soviet work with more advanced harmonies for its time, Prokofiev’s First String Quartet takes the listener on a journey full of dramatic twists and turns. Lush and lyrical, Korngold’s only piano quintet reflects the work of a prodigiously gifted 24-year-old composer head over heels in love.
The concert opens with Dvořák’s delightful two waltzes for String quartet.
Two Waltzes for String Quartet, Op.54 B.105
String Quartet No.1 in B minor, Op.50
Erich Wolfgang Korngold
Piano Quintet in E major, Op.15
Programme duration ~ 90 min with 20 min intermission
