About the concert
Featuring Piano Quartets of Mozart and Fauré in G minor, the drama and tension of both works complement each other in a colourful and profound manner. Mozart’s rare example of a chamber work in a minor key is filled with delicate angst, while Fauré’s ravenous portrayal of human emotion results in the piece being one of his most acclaimed works.
