Music in the Round presents Ensemble 360. This concert was live streamed from Upper Chapel in Sheffield UK on Saturday 5th December 2020.
BEETHOVEN String Quartet No.5, Op.18 No.5
DVOŘÁK Piano Quartet No.2, Op.87
Beethoven’s quartets explore every possible human emotion, and in his Fifth String Quartet he wrote some of the most uplifting and sparkling of all his music, in which the most perfectly simple melodies are thrown about amongst the four musicians, like a game. Dvořák’s Second Piano Quartet is no less playful, but here the music also takes on a more dramatic and impassioned nature, saturated in rich harmonies and soaring, rhapsodic tunes.
This concert is dedicated to Ronnie Birks (1945-2020), second violinist in the Lindsay String Quartet.
