Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: String Quartet in C major, K 465, “Dissonance”
Anton Webern: Five movements for string quartet
Franz Schubert: String Quintet in C major, D 956
Inspired by the heavenly dissonances of Mozart’s String Quartet in C major, Franz Schubert created his string quintet in the same key in 1828. In it, he transformed verses from his poem “Mein Gebet” about his hopes that his suffering would soon end into melodies of divine beauty. The secret of these melodies is well-known among the people of Vienna, including the young Pacific Quartet Vienna who won the Vienna Haydn Chamber Music Competition in 2015. The ensemble of four young musicians builds a bridge from Vienna to the Pacific, China and Japan. Their programme ranges from Mozart to Webern and Schubert, whose secrets they try to uncover together with Rudolf Leopold.
