Renowned British pianist is joined by four principal players from the Berliner Philharmoniker to perform Schubert’s iconic ‘Trout’ Quintet, as well as Mozart.
Christian Blackshaw | Piano
Noah Bendix-Balgley | Violin
Máté Szucs | Viola
Martin Lőhr | Cello
Matthew McDonald | Double Bass
Mozart | Piano Quartet No 1 in G minor K478
Schubert | Piano Sonata in A minor D784
Schubert | Piano Quintet in A D667 ‘Trout’
Four string principals from the Berliner Philharmoniker – Noah Bendix-Balgley, Máté Szucs, Martin Lohr and Matthew McDonald – join renowned British pianist Christian Blackshaw
for a captivating recital bringing together two chamber masterpieces.
Schubert’s gloriously tuneful ‘Trout’ Quintet is rightly celebrated for its songful variations, but it bristles with power and musical exuberance besides. Beforehand, the ensemble navigates the dark passions of Mozart’s virtuosic G minor Piano Quartet, and Blackshaw explores the visionary turbulence of Schubert’s compelling A minor Sonata, D784.
