Ways to the Romantic

Mozart Piano Quartet

“Without laying it on too thick, the Mozart Piano Quartet lets Idylls bloom,” wrote Die Zeit. There’s no question this ensemble counts among the leading piano quartets in the world. In 2018 the four musicians won an Opus Klassik for the “Chamber music recording of the year.” Beethoven’s Op. 16a kicks off their program in Brühl, an early chamber music work, which combines a relaxed serenade mood with intense outbreaks. Robert Schumann’s Piano Quartet exudes passion and rapture, and was one of his wife Clara Schumann’s favorite works. Clara Schumann is also present in Brahms’ shocking Piano Quartet in C minor: the young composer began it shortly after he met the Schumann couple and fell in love with Clara.
