Dvorak and Beethoven
Tom McKinney with the first of four programmes in the Liverpool Philharmonic Chamber Series, including performances by the Pavel Haas Quartet and baritone Roderick Williams.
Tom McKinney presents the first of four programmes this week recorded as part of this season's Liverpool Philharmonic Chamber Series, held in the glorious St George's Hall. The series features some of the world's finest chamber musicians, including the Pavel Haas Quartet and the baritone Roderick Williams.
In today's programme, the Pavel Haas Quartet plays Dvorak's final string quartet, begun in America and completed on his return to Prague and his homeland. Roderick Williams sings Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte - to the distant beloved - considered to be the first genuine song cycle.
