Dvorak must have been a very sweet man if you judge by his Opus 81 A Major Piano Quintet! Did you know that it was composed within a year of the Dohnanyi Quintet Opus 1?
I didn’t realise Dohnanyi was such an all round good musician with a conscience. Not only did he write symphonies, concerti, and deliciously romantic chamber music, he was a great piano soloist, conductor and teacher in Berlin, Budapest and America. He also did what he could to resist the Nazis and help Jewish musicians.
I am pleased to announce that our new brochure is out for the 2016/17 season.
