Frith Piano Quartet
Hummel: Piano Quintet in E flat op 87
Beethoven: Piano Quartet in E flat op 16
Schubert: Piano Quintet in A D667 'The Trout'
The splendid (Benjamin) Frith Piano Quartet with John Tattersdill, bassist, in a programme of pure enjoyment.
We all know the Trout Piano Quintet by Schubert, but how many know the piece which prompted its composition, the E flat Piano Quintet by the most popular composer of the time, Johann Nepomuk Hummel? We also have the joy of hearing Beethoven’s Piano Quartet in E flat op 16 and can be sure that all the performances will have the vitality this music demands.
Duration: 2 hours with interval
