Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Both of these quartets are transcriptions of quintets for winds and piano by their respective composers but the links that bind them go much deeper. In the year after Mozart’s death, Beethoven began the draft of a work for the unusual instrumental ensemble of four wind instruments and piano. He was inspired by the similar work by Mozart, which had largely emancipated winds from their role in Harmoniemusik, employing them instead in the sophisticated ambience of chamber music. In this performance, following Beethoven’s own practice, the cadenzas in his quartet are improvised. ‘After The Young Beethoven, this second recording project completes the quartets for strings and piano by Ludwig van Beethoven. As in the previous programme, the link between the worlds of Mozart and Beethoven is clear and, in some aspects even more pronounced. In this case, the Quartet for Strings and Piano KV 452 represented an important reference point for the creation of the Quartet Op. 16, and it was such an important source of inspiration that we decided to put them together and highlight their evident and numerous elements of continuity, despite some relevant differences.’ – Leonardo Miucci
