By the time Dvořák composed his Piano Quartet in E flat he was an international celebrity, feted by the German and English musical establishments. It was composed during July and August 1889, and the inspiration seems to have flowed easily; Dvořák wrote ‘The melodies just surged upon me’. Our Chamber Ensemble in Residence also performs one of the absolute classics of the chamber music repertory, Schubert’s 'Trout' Quintet.
This concert is dedicated to the memory of Dvora Lewis
Paying tribute to Dvora Lewis, Amelia Freedman, Artistic Director of The Nash Ensemble, said, "Dvora was a consummate professional and one of the best PRs in the world of the arts. She was also a truly wonderful and loyal friend and a person of great integrity and warmth. I loved Dvora very much, she was a special person and we shall all miss her greatly."
