Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Stråkkvartett nr 19 ”Dissonans”
Pēteris Vasks: Bass Trip
Leoš Janáček: Stråkkvartett nr 1 ”Kreutzer sonata”
This chamber music recital at Turku Castle features what is probably the best known of Mozart’s string quartets; it’s sub-title ‘Dissonance’ comes from the unconventional harmonies of its introduction. It is paired with a newer work, the string quartet by Janáček that was inspired by the short story ‘The Kreutzer Sonata’ by Tolstoy. Between the quartets is a work for solo double bass by Vasks, where the double bass player is also called upon to sing.
