Chamber concert 5

Hell's Kitchen

Part of «Chamber Music Plus»

Franz Schubert: Quintet A major D 667 «Trout Quintet»


Igor Strawinsky: Suite from «The Firebird» (1909/10)
Arrangement for Piano four Hands by Philip Moore (*1976)
Christian Mason: «Shadowy Fish. Hommage à Schubert» for Violin, Viola, Violoncello, Double Bass and Piano (2020)
Bohuslav Martinů: «La revue de cuisine» for Clarinet, Trumpet, Bassoon, Violin, Violoncello and Piano (1927)

Duration approx. 110 minutes, incl. interval

Bewitching, animal and culinary: this programme combines Franz Schubert's masterpiece with the famous variations on his own song «The Trout» with ballet sounds of the 20th century: the captivating suite from Stravinsky's «The Firebird» and the jazzy, dance-like music from Martinů's entertainingly absurd «Kitchen Revue», in which the pot, lid, whisk and dishcloth come to life.

In addition, the fascinating work «Shadowy Fish» by composer in residence Christian Mason, inspired by the dazzlingly beautiful colours of trout and the poetry of Pablo Neruda.
