String Quintets by Mozart and Dvorak

A Maiastra concert - Free Admission

Part of the Maiastra 2018/19 Series

Add to my Calendar 05-05-2019 19:30 05-05-2019 21:30 36 String Quintets by Mozart and Dvorak Admission Free - retiring collection in aid of the Aidan Woodcock Charitable Trust which provides training and support for young players. MOZART ‘The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between’; so said Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and in the introduction to his lively String Quintet No. 5 in D major, K. 593, he teases us with silences in which we wait in anticipation for what might follow. In this composition of four movements we experience light and laughter, graceful passages and amiable themes that almost belie the complexity of the piece and the extraordinary craft of Mozart.   DVORAK In the summer of 1891 Antonín Leopold Dvořák was invited to be Director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York.  Two years later, living in Iowa with his young family, he began work on his ‘American’ string quartet, Opus 96, and then launched into a companion-piece scored for a string quintet, his Opus 97.  The quintet’s expressive heart lies in its slow movement, but the music’s exuberance is also hard to resist. The closing pages are calculated to leave the audience with a sense of utmost excitement, and often bring the house down.   Course Leader MATTHIJS BROERSMA studied cello at The Yehudi Menuhin School with Louise Hopkins and Leonid Gorokhov, and then at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and at the Hochschule der Künste, Bern.  As a soloist and chamber musician he has performed extensively worldwide, in venues such as the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam and the Wigmore Hall.  Matthijs is the cellist of the Gémeaux Quartett, a firmly established international prize-winning Swiss quartet.

MOZART

‘The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between’; so said Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and in the introduction to his lively String Quintet No. 5 in D major, K. 593, he teases us with silences in which we wait in anticipation for what might follow.

DVORAK

In the summer of 1891 Antonín Leopold Dvořák was invited to be Director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York.  Two years later, living in Iowa with his young family, he began work on his ‘American’ string quartet, Opus 96, and then launched into a companion-piece scored for a string quintet, his Opus 97.  The quintet’s expressive heart lies in its slow movement, but the music’s exuberance is also hard to resist.
