Overview

Haydn: Quartet in G Major, Op. 33, No. 5
Schumann: Quartet in F Major, Op. 41, No. 2
Shostakovich: Quintet in G Minor, Op. 57

The Schumann Quartet plays “staggeringly well… with sparkling virtuosity and a willingness to astonish” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). Currently in the midst of a three-year residency at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Cologne-based group makes its first appearance in Philadelphia with renowned pianist Gilbert Kalish who joins the Schumann for Shostakovich’s Quintet, a powerful, five-movement work written during World War II. The Quintet is memorable for its elegiac second movement fugue, the wit and verve of its scherzo and finale, and the virtuosity of its piano part.
