|Mahler||Quartettsatz for Piano Quartet|
|Schulhoff||Duo for violin and cello|
|Smetana||Polkas for piano|
|Dvořák||Piano Quartet in E-flat Op.87|
A piano quartet formed of four celebrated soloists – Piers Lane (piano), Philippe Graffin (violin), Elizabeth Wallfisch (viola), Raphael Wallfisch (cello) – in a programme of German and Czech masterworks. Mahler’s beautiful one-movement piano quartet is followed by music from the early twentieth-century Austro-Czech composer, Erwin Schulhoff – his famous Duo from 1925. Their programme then moves more firmly into old Czechoslovakia and Bohemia, with music by Smetana and Dvořák’s ever-popular Piano Quartet in E-flat.
This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
