MINETTI QUARTETT I
Mozart – Tröndle – Schumann
Chamber music | Concert | Adults
Mozart’s D major quartet KV 575 is one of the so-called “Prussian quartets“. They were composed for the cello-playing King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm II, in the hope they would lead to further lucrative commissions. But that was not to be. In the andante section, Mozart employed a delightful reworking of his Lied “Das Veilchen” (the violet). When Robert Schumann began to have his first “quartettistische Gedanken” (thoughts about quartets), he looked towards Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Ángela Tröndle drew her inspiration for her first string quartet, which was written in 2020 as a commission for “sytriarte” and dedicated to the Minetti Quartet, from the poem “Mondnacht” by Joseph von Eichendorff. Schumann set this poem to music in his “Lieder cycle Op. 39”.
