In Season 4 we celebrate the advent of Romantic style with Cambini's String Quartets Op. 21 nos 1 and 3, unusually scored for violin, 2 violas and cello. Eberl studied with Mozart and was known as a foremost piano virtuoso and teacher in Europe. Some of his music has been described as being as good as or better than Beethoven. His Piano Quintet op. 41 for violin, two violas, cello and piano is instantly appealing and imaginative in approach to form pushing the boundaries and heralding Romanticism. We welcome violists Deirdre Dowling and Gabrielle Kancachian for this final program in our 2017 season.

Prussian Inspiration: string quartets for King Wilhelm

 

Boccherini opus 32

Haydn opus 50

Mozart Prussian quartet

 

King Friedrich Wilhelm II, an enthusiastic amateur cellist was the inspiration for these three works by the masters of the Classical string quartet, Haydn, Boccherini and Mozart. All composed in the late 18th century, these quartets offer a dazzlingly display of virtuosity and charming solos, notably for the cello part. In 2016, Ironwood celebrates 10 years committed to exploring historically informed performance of repertoire from baroque, classical and romantic eras on period instruments. We are thrilled to present this special concert in Melbourne to celebrate musical friendships and 10 years of music making, exploring and sharing the music we love.

 

Musicians

Rachael Beesley (violin), Peter Clark (violin), Katie Yap (viola), Daniel Yeadon (cello)
