SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2019, 7 PM
Jackie Brand, violin, Erik Rynearson, viola, and Trevor Handy, cello, all of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra
and Robert Cassidy, piano.
This chamber music concert brings together members of the Los Angles Chamber Orchestra with Robert Cassidy to perform the Mozart Piano Quartets: Piano Quartet No 1 in G Minor, KV 478 and Piano Quartet No 2 in E Flat major, KV 493. “Mozart’s piano quartets do not make reference to any tradition as Mozart was among the first to explore the genre…Mozart saw piano quartets as a kind of sonata enriched with additional voices,” (notes from Marinsky Theatre).
This concert will also feature a performance of Bohuslav Martinu’s String Trio No. 2. This compelling piece written in 1934 is noted for the composer’s use of Czech fold idioms, modernism and neo-classicist motor-rhythms.
