Mendelssohn and Schumann wrote some of the high points of the German Romantic chamber music repertoire. Period instrument strings here plunge us into a startling sound world, of soft-edged lyricism and rhythmic vitality. With Tiberghien’s period piano – mellow, brittle, nimble – it allows us to hear Schumann’s quintet with fresh ears. Like his poetic, radical solo Fantasy, it is inspired by his virtuoso pianist wife Clara. The piece’s first pianist however was Mendelssohn, whose quartet provides the ideal foil, with music of fiery turbulence framing some of his loveliest instrumental songs without words.



This performance will be broadcast live by Radio 3 in Concert
