UPCOMING CAVATINA EVENTS

HEATH QUARTET AND DANIEL TONG: ROMANTIC TENSIONS

Thursday 24 March, 7.30pm
1 hour 30 minutes including interval

Fanny Mendelssohn String Quartet in E flat 
Liszt La Lugubre Gondola
Schumann Piano Quintet in E flat, Op.44 

Mere kapellmeister music was the progressive Liszt's response to Schumann's Piano Quintet, premiered with Mendelssohn at the piano when Clara Schumann was taken ill. Nevertheless, this ebullient work, immediately one of Schumann's greatest successes, has become one of the most enduring in the repertoire. The Schumanns and Mendelssohns were often on friendly terms, mutual respect abounding, but in private Robert Schumann was not above disparaging Mendelssohn to his wife for his Jewishness. Liszt's Lagubre Gondola depicts Wagner's funeral gondola as it travels the canals of Venice; Wagner's genius on the one hand, but also terrible antisemitism on the other (often aimed directly at Mendelssohn) need no introduction.
