Dvořák – String Quartet No 8
Beethoven – “Storm” Quintet
Dvořák – String Quartet No 10 ‘Slavonic’
This celebration of the irresistible Anton Dvořák begins with his quartet No 8, a work of great lyricism and charm from this master of melody, and ends with No 10 ‘Slavonic’ in which his infectious joie de vivre is inspired by the music of his homeland with themes later used for his Slavonic dances.
Douglas Patterson, violist of the Schubert Ensemble, joins for Beethoven’s only viola quintet, one of his greatest chamber music masterpieces with a heartbreaking and sublime slow movement before the thunder and lightning of the finale.
