Welcome to MOZART meets DVOŘÁK performance broadcasted from the Beethoven concert hall in a recreation and golf resort Öschberghof in Donaueschingen! The program includes two of the well-known masterpieces by Mozart and Dvořák. Mozart’s concerto No. 12 for piano and orchestra written in a joyful and electrifying key A major will be performed in a rare arrangement for piano and strings made by Ignaz Lachner, a German conductor and composer of the 19th century. There are some indications that the so-called early Viennese piano concerts to which the A major concerto belongs were originally intended to be arranged for a piano quintet and to be played as family music. The rondeau fragment arranged for a piano quintet by Mozart himself (KV 368) confirms it.
One of the most popular chamber music pieces written by Dvořák, the piano quintet A major op.81, resulted from an amazing fact: Dvořak had written a piano quintet in A major in his younger years but later declared it unworthy of his talent and rewrote it.
The MOZART meets DVOŘÁK concert will be performed within the concert cycle Öschberghof Klassik by an outstanding QUATUOR HERMÈS string quartet founded in 2008. QUATUOR HERMÈS includes Élise Liu as well as Omer Bouchez on violins, Lou Yung-Hsin Chang on viola and Yan Levionnois on cello. Haiou Zhang, the famous pianist and the moving spirit of the Öschberghof Klassik concerts, will round a string quartet off to a piano quintet!
