Classicism vs. Romanticism Featuring the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra All-Stars
Time & Location
About the Event
Two famous piano quartets—one composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1785; the other completed by Gabriel Fauré in 1883—form the basis of a musical exploration of Classical and Romantic styles. Mozart’s piano quartet in G minor, K. 478, is a dark and dramatic work by our most famous “Classical” composer. In contrast, Fauré’s piano quartet in C minor, Op. 15, is a sweeping lyrical work by the great French Romantic. Join us for a brief guided musical tour of both works, followed by complete performances featuring the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra All-Stars: Robin Sharp (violin), Ben Simon (viola), Eric Gaenslen (cello), and Keisuke Nakagoshi (piano).
