Christian Blackshaw & Soloists of the Berliner Philharmoniker

Schubert’s ‘Trout’ Quintet

Renowned British pianist is joined by four principal players from the Berliner Philharmoniker to perform Schubert and Mozart.

Christian Blackshaw Piano
Noah Bendix-Balgley Violin
Máté Szucs Viola
Martin Löhr Cello
Matthew McDonald Double Bass

Mozart Piano Quartet No 1 in G minor K478
Schubert Piano Sonata in A minor D784
Schubert Piano Quintet in A D667 ‘Trout’ 

Four string principals from the Berliner Philharmoniker – Noah Bendix-Balgley, Máté Szucs, Martin Löhr and Matthew McDonald – join renowned British pianist Christian Blackshaw for a captivating recital bringing together two chamber masterpieces.

Schubert’s gloriously tuneful ‘Trout’ Quintet is rightly celebrated for its songful variations, but it bristles with power and musical exuberance besides. Beforehand, the ensemble navigates the dark passions of Mozart’s virtuosic G minor Piano Quartet, and Blackshaw explores the visionary turbulence of Schubert’s compelling A minor Sonata, D784.
