Music workshop based on Hans Keller’s analysis of Mozart K421

Recollections of Hans Keller


In the late 1950s Hans Keller devised a wordless form of musical analysis to demonstrate the 'unity of contrasting themes' within a single work. He composed fifteen such 'functional analyses'.

Using Keller’s detailed analysis of the piece, the Accendo Quartet will work with Levon Chilingirian and Keller’s literary executor Christopher Wintle on Mozart’s D minor quartet from the set dedicated to Haydn..

The Accendo Quartet members (Juliette Roos, Sabin Sargejeva, Alex McFarlane & Daniel Benn) are currently studying at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where Hans Keller taught in the 1980s and where Levon Chilingirian teaches now. The Chilingirian Quartet were themselves coached by Hans Keller in the 1970s.
