Programme
Bartok Contrasts (for violin, clarinet and piano)
Mozart Piano Quartet in E flat major, K493

The Dorchester Piano Quartet return for the second of their regular visits to Dorchester Arts. They will be joined for the first time by Elizabeth Drew, one of the regular members of Kokoro, the contemporary music ensemble of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

The programme will comprise of two pieces of work from contrasting composers, each trailblazers of their time. Bartok’s Contrasts (for violin, clarinet and piano) was commissioned by American clarinettist Benny Goodman, known as “The King of Swing” in 1938. Mozart wrote Piano Quartet in E flat major, K493 for violin, viola, cello and piano at the height of his powers in 1786. It was uncommon to use this combination of instruments at that time, so he in effect invented the genre.
