Pre-concert talk by Robert Hugill at 5.30pm in the Brockway Room:

Music among friends

The development of the role of the piano in chamber music in the 19th century, with a detailed look at Faure's Piano Quartet.

Mozart's Piano Quartet was one of the first pieces to be written for that combination, and it was music which was regarded as too difficult for amateurs. So throughout the 19th century composers (many of them pianists) would experiment with various combinations of piano and strings in chamber music, in works aimed at the new breed of virtuoso performers.
