Naxos releases Mozart's two most famous Piano Cocnertos with pianist Alon Glodstein, the Fine Arts Quartet and Rachel Calin.
To make Mozart’s Piano Concertos K. 466 and K. 467 more accessible to the public, the 19th-century composer Ignaz Lachner left the piano parts untouched and made splendid transcriptions of the orchestra parts for just string quartet with added bass. These chamber versions of two of Mozart’s greatest and most popular concertos sound almost as natural as if Mozart had transcribed them himself.
Netherlands tour starts April 8th, including concerts in Nijmegan, Tilberg, Utrecht, Tiel, Maastricht and the stunning Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. A celebratory Saint-Saëns programme with special guests Cristina Ortiz, Ad Wellerman, Matthew Midgley and Hans van Loenen. Check the calendar for details.
In a collaboration with Hibrow TV, the Fine Arts Quartet perform acclaimed classical 19th Century repertoire and masterpieces of 20th Century chamber music. The evening will start on screen with specially edited interviews filmed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington in February. Details
