Saturday May 28th, Dore Abbey at 7.00PM
Four fabulous artists with an absolutely wonderful programme. Join leading players from the London Symphony Orchestra and The Sitkovetsky Piano Trio for an evening of magnificent chamber music.
Mahler Piano Quartet in A minor
Fauré Piano Quartet No.1 in C minor, Op.15
Brahms Piano Quartet No.1 in G minor, Op.25
Acclaimed Leader of the LSO Roman Simovic (violin), is accompanied by Milena Simovic principal viola the Ulster Orchestra, David Cohen principal cello the LSO and much lauded Chinese pianist Wu Qian (founder member of the Sitkovetsky Piano Trio), perform two of the most famous piano quartets in the repertoire, Brahms Piano Quartet No.1 in G minor, and Fauré’s Quartet No 1 in C minor.
Best known for its rousing finale, the famous Rondo alla zingarese (Gypsy Rondo) Brahms’ G minor Piano Quartet is one of his earliest great works in the medium. It is paired here with the beauty and passion of Fauré’s Piano Quartet in C minor.
Alongside is a rarely heard curiosity – Mahler’s contemplative Piano Quartet No 1 movement, the tantalising torso of a work never completed.
And all in the beautiful surrounds of the historic Dore Abbey with its widely acknowledged amazing acoustics.
