Hannah Fraser (mezzo-soprano), Kathryn Stott (piano), Ying Quartet, New Zealand String Quartet.
BeethovenBrahms – Songs for Alto, Viola and Piano op. 91 Beethoven – Trio in c minor opus 1#3 Novacek – 3 Rags for string quartet Lilburn – Inscapes II Shostakovich – Piano Quintet op. 57
More fabulous ensemble music featuring Kathryn Stott! The two sumptuous Brahms songs open the evening, Beethoven’s groundbreaking C minor piano trio will sound familiar but different after hearing the string quintet’s version; you decide which you prefer. Tap your toes to the Ying Quartet’s favourite party pieces, Novacek’s 3 Ragtimes and, after interval, the Shostakovich Piano Quintet will seize your ears and not let them go until the final chords have drifted into the ether.
