Program

A very young Apollon Musagète Quartet debuted in Barcelona during L’Auditori’s Chamber ‎Music season on 3 March 2011, with a demanding repertoire comprising pieces by Beethoven, ‎Schumann, Chopin and Szymanowski. Seven years later, and now with more than ten years’ ‎experience, Apollon Musagète returns to L’Auditori as one of the most prestigious and ‎dynamic young quartets, presenting the second instalment of the complete String ‎Quintets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, kicked off last season with the Modigliani ‎Quartet. Accompanied by the young and multi-award winning viola player Nils Mönkemeyer, ‎the quartet will perform two of Mozart’s quintets, both major works in the chamber music ‎repertoire. Included is the tragic Quintet in C minor that Mozart composed ‎whilst in the midst of major financial hardships and in which he expresses all his disquiet in ‎several opening measures that are full of drama; and the final Quintet, catalogued as K.614 ‎and written in the year of his death, with a sublime Finale where the principal ‎theme conceals, within its lightness, the seed that Mozart would turn into an intense and ‎conflicting fugue. Mönkemeyer will complete the programme with a performance of the ‎‎Suite for Solo Cello, no. 1 by Johann Sebastian Bach, one of the major landmarks ‎in the repertoire for strings.‎
