ROBERT SCHUMANN: Piano Quartet, Op. 47
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN: String Quartet No. 9, Op. 59-3
What kind of sparks will happen when string trios and quartets meet the piano? Ernoe Dohnanyi, a Hungarian pianist and also a precocious and genius composer, had been highly praised by Brahms through his adolescent works. The serenade Dohnanyi composed when he was 26 share the Viennese tradition since Brahms, but also has a sense of Romanticism at the fin de siècle. The piano quartet of Schumann is filled with energy, yet still warm and beautiful. Especially melodies in the third movement are sincere, sensitive, and expressive, making the listeners fascinated with the music. The three string quartets composed by Beethoven, dedicated to the Russian ambassador, Razumovsky, are often considered to be the turning point for chamber music from being regarded as amateur to professional. No. 9 is the latest among them, and not surprisingly at all, shows the advanced techniques and magnificence. As a result, it is also the most popular piece among them. This time, NSO members and guest musicians will flaunt their talents for everyone to explore the wonderful and exquisite works of chamber music.
