DOHNÁNYI Piano Quintet No.2 in E flat minor Op.26
ELGAR Piano Quintet in A minor Op.84
The Schubert Ensemble performs two contrasting works written either side of the First World War. Elgar’s Quintet shifts from thoughtful, almost introverted music to massive, passionate outbursts, while Dohnányi’s work displays rich, glowing colours that grip the listener from start to finish.
The concert opens with one of the Ensemble’s acclaimed ‘Behind the Notes’ introductions using live demonstrations to strip down the music and reveal the inner workings of Dohnányi’s Piano Quintet.
