Mozart Quintet in Eb for Piano and Winds
Britten Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo
Finzi To A Poet
Schumann Quintet in Eb for Piano and Strings
Two major quintets bookend this glorious closing programme: Mozart’s sublime Quintet for Piano and Winds, one of the masterpieces of all the repertoire, and Schumann’s rapturous Quintet for Piano and Strings. In the middle of the programme we visit two masters of the English song repertoire: Benjamin Britten, in his deeply personal Michelangelo Sonnets, and Gerald Finzi, is his summing up of music and art, ‘To A Poet’.
