About this concert
The Schubert string Quintet in C major is among the most celebrated of all chamber works. It is preceded tonight by what might appear to be a first half of Italian music, except for the fact Rosetti was actually Bohemian, having changed his name from the less fashionable sounding František Antonín Rösler! His C minor quartet is a fine example of the mid 18th century obsession with Sturm und Drang (“Storm and Stress”), and should prove an effective foil to a piece from one of the finest works of Donizetti’s youth, before he devoted himself almost exclusively to opera.
For this, we will be swapping our modern strings for their late18th /early 19th century gut predecessors, as part of our long-term search for a sound that the composers of those times might have been familiar with.
This concert features Daniel Yeadon, who was a founding member of the baroque group Florilegium, becoming FSQ cellist from 1996 until he re-located to Australia in 2000.
