Alexander Sitkovetsky, Alexandra Raikhlina, Jack Liebeck – violin; Simon Oswell, Louise Williams – viola; Thomas Carroll, Gemma Rosefield – cello; Filipe Pinto-Ribeiro – piano
Brahms: String Sextet No. 1 in B-flat Major, Op. 18
Mozart: Piano Trio in C, K548
Korngold: Piano Quintet in E Major, Op. 15
Tonight’s concert is the product of three young men. Brahms’ String Sextet No 1 and Korngold’s Piano Quintet were written by composers in their twenties, who went on to long and distinguished careers. The other, Mozart’s Piano Trio K548, was written when the composer had just passed thirty. He, however, was near the end of a career of concentrated creativity unparalleled in music.
