Klavier-Rezital Pavel Kolesnikov & Samson Tsoy
Théodore Gouvy's fifth and last quartet from 1874 is reminiscent of Mendelssohn in places. Nevertheless, he took the overly self-critical view that he had to compose „half a dozen more quartets“ in order to finally master „the quartet style“. In any case, there is a rarely performed composer to discover here! Giuseppe Verdi was apparently also inclined to either false modesty or irony when he claimed to have written his String Quartet of 1873, which remained his only work of instrumental music, only to pass the time. He later had it printed and arranged a version for string orchestra. The highly talented Erwin Schulhoff often hinted at jazz in his compositions and was open to influences beyond high culture. His „Five Pieces for String Quartet“, which he composed at the end of 1923 and with which he achieved his breakthrough the following year and which the musicians of the Vogler Quartet have placed in the middle of the program, bear witness to this.
