Wednesday, 14 March 2018

Bruch Piano Quintet in G minor Bray Piano Quartet Dvorak Piano Quintet no. 3 in A major op 81 After 35 years at the top of their game, this will be the Schubert Ensemble's final season. The group has performed in over 40 countries, has over 80 commissions to its name and has recorded over 30 highly acclaimed CDs. In 1998 the Schubert Ensemble's contribution to musical life was recognised by the Royal Philharmonic Society when it presented the group with the Best Chamber Ensemble Award, for which it was shortlisted again in 2010. For their fourth and final appearance at ICC, the Schubert Ensemble bring Bruch's Quintet, written for a group of amateur players in Liverpool, and filled with his luscious song-like melodies. Charlotte Bray's quartet was written for the ensemble and inspired by a visit to Greenland: well received on its premiere earlier this year the three movements explore the different forms of ice - an ice-field, a calving glacier and an iceberg. The programme culminates with one of the masterpieces of piano quintet repertoire - a mixture of Dvorak's expressive lyricism and his unique ability to distil the essence of Czech folk music.
