Piano Quartet by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is called the highest peak of chamber music. In Liepaja we will hear this peak performed by the famous Polish Baroque piano quartet Arte dei Suonatori Piano Quartet. In addition, the composition will be played on a historic piano made in Salzburg – Mozart’s hometown – brought here especially for this evening from Poland. The unique instrument is a replica of the instrument made in 1805 by Michael Rosenberger, the outstanding piano master of the First Viennese School. The original was widely used in the Austrian salons and aristocratic homes of that time.
In the first part of the concert, with carefully selected pieces of chamber music by the Polish classics, the quartet will recreate, in Liepaja Concert Hall, the mood that prevailed in the houses of wealthy Warsaw citizens in the 19th century. Inviting one to travel through time and space, the quartet will open the concert with a composition by the renowned Polish composer and educator Józef Elsner. Next, a composition by one of the first female piano virtuosos, Maria Szymanowska, and after that – a musical piece by composer Franciszek Lessel. The concert will reach its climax with the pearl of Mozart’s chamber music – the Piano Quartet in G minor.
Arte dei Suonatori Piano Quartet is a chamber ensemble of orchestra Arte dei Suonatori that is well known in the world of Baroque music. The orchestra was founded in 1993 and has become one of the most recognisable Polish ensembles on the international stage. Their repertoire consists of around 700 pieces, mostly from the 17th and 18th centuries. The music of Arte dei Suonatori has been recorded by many prestigious record companies and they are the winners of several international awards, including the main award of British music – Gramophone Classical Music Awards.
