SYNOPSIS

Travel and romance have long inspired some of the greatest works. Fresh from their concert tour of Malaysia, Concordia Quartet presents a travelogue of Romantic works written while their composers were away from home.

The programme features Dvořák’s ‘American’ quintet, which incorporates the sights and sounds he experienced when he saw a Native American traveling circus, and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Op. 44 No. 2, written while the composer was on honeymoon in the Black Forest.

The night is topped off by Schubert’s Quartettsatz, a work so exquisite and complete that some scholars believe Schubert deemed it needed no additional movements.

Violist Andrew Filmer from Malaysia joins the quartet members in the Dvořák String Quintet.

 

PROGRAMME

 

Franz Schubert
String Quartet in C minor, D.703 (String Quartet No.12, Quartettsatz)
