Programme Information

JANÁČEK String Quartet No.1 Kreutzer Sonata
ELGAR Romance Op.62 for bassoon and string quartet

ADÈS Court Studies from The Tempest for clarinet, violin, cello and piano
ELGAR Piano Quintet in A minor Op.84

Elgar’s Piano Quintet is considered by many to be his greatest chamber music work. It is said to have been inspired by legends of Spanish monks struck by lightning while conducting sacrilegious activities in the Sussex countryside. Thomas Adès’s brief Court Studies, from his opera The Tempest, are a great companion to Janáček’s Kreutzer Sonata, which is also tempestuous. Its propulsive rhythms and speech-like melodies express pathos and ecstasy through an amazing and unexpected collective string sound.
