Mozart – Quintet No.5 in Dmaj, K593

Beethoven – Quintet in Cmaj, Op29

Following several seasons of popular concerts in the Ballroom of the Lion Hotel, the quintet returns to play two masterpieces from Vienna. Mozart’s D major Quintet K.593 represents the mature composer at the pinnacle of his creative powers and is famed for the zigzag chromatic descending theme of the last movement. Beethoven’s Op.29 Quintet is allegedly thought to have inspired Schubert to write his own string quintet in the same key.

A group of chamber music colleagues and friends initially put together by the late Peter Cropper, they perform in his Memory and with his unique style of music making.

Introduced by the players – all established members of various well-known chamber groups who enjoy the opportunity to present programmes they particularly love.
