Ode to Joy
Academy Building of the Peace Palace | 16:00 *
The Cristofori Piano Quartet consists of musicians from France, England and the Netherlands
In the Academy Building, within the grounds of the Peace Palace, you can enjoy two delicious masterpieces of the piano quartet genre. The young Beethoven wrote this quartet whilst making a concert tour through Dresden, Prague and Berlin and his youthful wanderlust bursts out from it. It is a work full of fresh extravagances and humorous inventions. Totally different is the piano quartet by Fauré, who was no longer a young man when he wrote his second piano quartet. This is a turbulent and deeply moving work. The contrast between the two quartets is considerable and you will leave the performance in perfect balance. Guaranteed!
This part of the festival will take place in collaboration with the Carnegie Foundation.
