Schumann and Beethoven

Kettering Piano Quartet
1842 was Robert Schumann’s great chamber music year. He completed three string quartets, his immortal piano quintet and directly after the quintet his inspired piano quartet. Artistically every bit the equal of the quintet but with a more noticeable structural influence from Beethoven, KPQ has paired Schumann’s piano quartet with Beethoven’s Piano Quartet Op 16. A work so good Beethoven published it twice. Join the Kettering Piano Quartet for an afternoon of music par excellence.
