Piano Quintet Op. 44
This collaboration between students, alumni, faculty and administration features two towering masterpieces, each a quintet, but of two different formations. Mozart’s Viola Quintet in G minor, in the most typical string formation (string quartet plus viola), explores the dark and unstable emotional world of what has become one of Mozart’s most iconic keys. In contrast, Robert Schumann’s Piano Quintet, dedicated to his new wife Clara, is full of a sense of joie de vivre.
