Description

The piano quartet, consisting of piano, violin, viola, and cello, was basically invented by Mozart. His two immensely popular works in the genre paved the way for a far-reaching succession of piano quartets by major composers, all the way into the 20th century. With Mozart’s remarkable innovation to open this concert, contrasting works by two of the greatest German composers follow, offering a bird’s-eye view of a rich, 100-year musical landscape.
