Quatuor Danel celebrates its thirty year anniversary in 2022 and will celebrate during the String Quartet Biennale. Together with three of their favorite fellow players, the quartet members conquer the highest peaks of chamber music. Three major quintets are on this programme: Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet with François-Frédéric Guy, Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet with Pascal Moraguès and Schubert’s String Quintet with cellist Clemens Hagen of the Hagen Quartett.
Each of these three quintets is an apotheosis of style, period and language, but they are all very different from each other. Mozart is playful, lilting and clear; Schubert lingers in romantic fantasies and Shostakovich searches and struggles. Not only is this programme a great achievement – almost a complete chamber music festival in one concert – but it also offers two hours of the most beautiful chamber music ever written. A tasty birthday treat from Quatuor Danel.
