Dvořák
Piano Quintet in A No. 2, Op. 81

The Navarra Quartet returns to the Barber, this time with University piano tutor and seasoned international performer Alexander Boyd. Dvořák’s second piano quintet, a work lasting forty minutes, was written in 1887 but was not Dvořák’s first attempt at writing in this form. Nearly a decade earlier Dvořák had abandoned the first score but returned later after refining his chamber writing style. The rich and stately result will be performed in this concert by some of the UK’s most gifted chamber musicians.
