Event Description:
Programme Mozart Piano Quartet in E flat major, K 493 Fauré Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 15 Performers Arisa Fujita - violin Nic Hughes- viola Ben Tarlton - cello Serene Koh - piano Admission Free - retiring collection in aid of the Aidan Woodcock Charitable Trust which provides training and support for young players. Refreshments available before the performance and during the interval. Website: Mozart practically invented the piano quartet, but this one was initially rejected as 'uncommercial and too challenging' by his publisher. This work is now recognized as a superbly balanced three-movement composition, and a work of genius. Fauré's first piano quartet, written almost a century later, is regarded as one of the loveliest of all time. Despite being in a minor key, the quartet is predominantly positive in tone, though the Adagio hints at the emotional turmoil in Fauré’s personal life.
