Mozart Piano Quartet No. 1 in G Minor, K. 478 30’
Piano Quartet No. 2 in E-flat Major, K. 493 32’
Schubert Piano Quintet in A Major ‘The Trout’, D. 667 38’
This is a new collaboration between principal players of the great Berlin Philharmonic and Christian Blackshaw, a pianist renowned for his performances of Schubert and Mozart.
The ‘Trout’ quintet is one of Schubert’s best-loved pieces, full of easy-going charm, jaunty high spirits and inspired melodies. Blackshaw’s Mozart performances are particularly revered for their crystalline beauty, deft characterisation and an unforced, stylish approach.
