Die Freitags Akademie

The premiere of Mozart’s Quintet for piano and winds must of been a shock and at the same time a delight for the audience of the 18th century. The immense richness of colors and sounds were entirely unusual. Mozart had been searching for new challenges and was rewarded. After the premier on April 1st, 1784 Mozart wrote to his father: "... had a very great success ... I myself consider it to be the best work I have ever written in my life." Mozart celebrated one of the greatest triumphs of his career. The near-orchestral rich sonorities, the masterful harmony, the continuing and vigorous dialogue of the oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon with the piano was heard for the first time. Only thirteen years later Beethoven started to work with this unusual instrumentation and tonal colors. His quintet for piano and winds was also premiered in Vienna on April 6, 1797. Beethoven created with the minimal instrumentation a fascinating sound art of simple things, a composition which was prophetic of his later symphonic works. Under the group name “Die Freitagsakademie“ Katharina Suske has gathered some of the finest international artists: Edoardo Torbianelli (fortepiano),

Katharina Suske (oboe), Pierre-André Taillard (clarinet), Lyndon Watts (bassoon) and Olivier Darbellay (horn). These five musicians, each with their own unique character, blend together and reciprocally influence each other to create a single flowing sound body and impresses with their entirely new, dynamic interpretation.

“These performances by the Swiss period-instrument ensemble Die Freitagsakademie are so full of character and incident that one can almost overlook the disc’s short playing time…[this recording] offers musical riches to rival the very best, and should delight even those listeners who normally shy away from period instruments” Gramophone Magazine, November 2016

Newly re-mastered.

‘He was innately musical in a way which defies description or analysis. He shaped phrases with an instinctive rightness that seemed inevitable. Technical problems did not exist for him. He had tamed the most notoriously intractable of all instruments to be his obedient servant and raised it again to sing the song the sirens sang.’ Walter Legge

Mozart & Beethoven - Quintets for Piano & Winds


Beethoven:

Quintet in E flat major for piano and winds, Op.16

Mozart:

Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat, K452

Adagio and Rondo K617 arranged for piano, flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon


On this disc one of the world’s finest pianists encounters one of the world’s greatest wind quintets, performing two very special works: Mozart’s and Beethoven’s quintets for piano and winds. The unusual scoring has led these works to be performed less often than they deserve: indeed, in 1784 Mozart wrote about his work to his father Leopold stating ‘I myself consider it to be the best thing I have ever written’. Twelve years later, Beethoven composed his Quintet, which he also arranged for the standard piano quartet combination. Beethoven must have been familiar with Mozart’s work: the choice of the same key and the same formal structure (down to small details) cannot be purely coincidental.

“The combination of Stephen Hough and wind players from the BPO makes for sparkling performances of these two quintets… It is noticeable that the Berlin horn is less plummy than the Viennese, and in the slow movement of the Mozart Hough and his partners take a lighter view than their rivals, highlighting the tenderness. Hough and the Berliners also bring out the stylistic contrasts between Mozart and the youthful Beethoven, who expressly adopted the layout of the Mozart Quintet.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2007

The London Conchord Ensemble returns to the Music Room at Champs Hill to present a double-disc of music from Vienna including works by Beethoven, Berg, Mozart, Schoenberg, Johann Strauss II and Zemlinsky. The ensemble says of the programming: ''When compiling a collection of chamber music from Vienna, the embarrassment of riches makes it hard to find an organizational principle. It would be so difficult enough to be representative, let alone comprehensive. So, we have tried to do something different. We have put together two discs, focusing upon mixed chamber music for wind, strings and piano, each of which aims to have an internal logic created by links between composers and pieces.'' The London Conchord Ensemble is one of Europe's leading chamber ensembles. Their imaginative programming and charismatic performance style have won them many accolades over the years, and they celebrated their 10th anniversary with a BBC Chamber Music Prom at Cadogan Hall.
