Borodin Quartet With Barry Douglas
THURSDAY 01 JANUARY - 12:00 AM
Tchaikovsky A selection from The Seasons, Op 37b
Schubert String Quartet No 13 in A minor, D804 Rosamunde
Shostakovich Piano Quintet in G minor Op 57
A magical chamber music pairing, as the Borodin Quartet, one of the world’s legendary ensembles, is joined by celebrated pianist Barry Douglas to perform Shostakovich’s powerful quintet, a work which the ensemble performed with the composer himself and recorded with Sviatoslav Richter. The evening opens with a selection from Tchaikovsky’s twelve piano pieces commissioned by the periodical Nouvelliste to appear monthly, accompanied by poetic epigraphs. Tchaikovsky asked his servant to remind him of his duty on a certain day in the month, and composed each piece in a single sitting. Schubert’s quartet is one of three masterpieces that the composer wrote in 1824 which feature in the Autumn season.
