Mozart: Quartet in Dm, K.421
Dvořák: Quartet in G, Op. 106
The Observer described a recent Castalian Quartet concert as ‘…full of poetry, joy and sorrow’, which perfectly suits this programme. Dvořák called Mozart ‘sweet sunshine’, but in fact Mozart is the one in intense and dramatic mood while Dvořák himself supplies many sunny, happy moments, even if they are tempered with darker moods. A compelling combination from this superb quartet.
