Mozart, Mahler and Schumann from the Bath Mozartfest

The Amatis Piano Trio are joined by viola player Eivind Ringstad in a programme of piano quartets by Mahler, Mozart and Schumann.

New Generation Artists at the Bath Mozartfest. The Amatis Piano Trio are joined by the viola player Eivind Ringstad in a programme of Mahler, Mozart and Schumann.
In this concert, recorded last Friday afternoon at Bath's ornate Guildhall, these prodigiously talented young musicians explore three works for piano quartet. This oddly neglected instrumental combination inspired Mozart to pen the first masterpiece in a genre which went on to capture the imagination of the young Gustav Mahler and before him the mature Robert Schumann.
Presented by Georgia Mann.
