In a letter addressed to his father Leopold, Mozart wrote on April 10th, 1784: "I have written two grand concertos, and also a quintet […] which was received with extraordinary applause. I consider it myself to be the best thing I ever wrote in my life. How I wish you could have heard it; and how beautifully it was executed!" The quintets of Mozart and Beethoven are true little jewels of the chamber music repertoire, engaging the audience with a variety of emotions: operalike dialogues and improvisation, drama and humor… An experience made of contrasts!
The DIALOGHI ENSEMBLE (Spain) offers an innovative approach to music of the classical and romantic periods. The ensemble stands out by its highest level of artistry and its ability to (re)connect with audiences. Its members perform on period instruments and share with audiences the musical language’s main keys in order to unveil all the emotions intrinsic to the music. The ensemble’s debut recording featuring Mozart and Beethoven quintets with fortepiano will be released in 2017.
