Program

The Casals Quartet remains faithful to its annual date with L’Auditori’s Chamber Music season. ‎After the complete Beethoven quartets that they offered us last season and now ‎established as one of the most important string quartets on the scene at present, they team ‎up on this occasion with one of the world’s greatest stars of the piano, the Russian Alexander ‎Melnikov, to perform Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F minor, a masterwork ‎of the chamber music repertoire. Brahms, a compulsive perfectionist, took a long time to find ‎the right instrumentation for his quintet, but once he had, he composed one of his most ‎well-rounded works, with a balance of timbre that highlights the individual melodic lines, ‎notwithstanding the constant superimpositions of voice to which the themes are subject. ‎The Casals Quartet will round off the repertoire with Franz Joseph Haydn’s String ‎Quartet in C major and Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 1, two of their ‎favourite composers and fundamental for understanding the evolution of the genre: the first, ‎considered its founding father; the second, pivotal in helping to bring about its resurgence in ‎the 20th century.‎
