Program

After last season’s successful performances of some of Brahms' piano quartets performed by local musicians from Catalonia with a strong international presence, we will be doing it all again with the cellist Paul Codina, who will captain a list of international all-stars offering us piano quintets by Schumann and Dvorak. Schumann dedicated his famous quintet to his pianist wife Clara, who was to have played it on its opening night. However she was ill and the première was performed by Felix Mendelssohn, co-opted at the last minute, who successfully overcame the extreme difficulty of the piano part. Quintet No. 2 with piano by Dvorak, one of the most popular chamber pieces among performers, is a reconstruction of a previous quintet and includes references to Czech folk music.
