Event description

Description

Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence Op.70
Mozart String Quintet in G minor K.516

Tchaikovsky’s string sextet Souvenir de Florence was written following a trip to Italy, during which the composer visited the historic city and sketched one of the work's principal themes there.

The music exhibits an abundance of Russian passion and fervour, combined with Italian lyricism and brilliance. Scored for two violins, two violas and two cellos, it is symphonic in its sonority and texture, with plenty of opportunity to display the players’ virtuosity. Mozart's String Quintet is written in his 'tragic' key of
G minor and is scored for string quartet plus a second viola, giving a rich and melancholic quality to the texture.
