Live from Wigmore Hall, London.
The Fauré Quartet play music from both Russia and their homeland Germany, by Mahler, Beethoven and Mussorgsky.
Mahler: Piano Quartet in A minor
Beethoven: Piano Quartet in E flat major, Op 16c
Mussorgsky: Pictures from an Exhibition, arr. Fauré Quartet and Grigory Gruzman
Two unusual arrangements form the backbone of this Wigmore Hall concert: Beethoven's Piano Quartet is an arrangement of his Quintet for piano and wind (Op 16), while Mussorgsky's Pictures from an Exhibition - originally composed for piano, but probably better known in Ravel's orchestration - is heard in a colourful new chamber arrangement by tonight's performers and pianist Grigory Gruzman.
