Gabriele Carcano piano
Fauré – Quintetto n. 1 in re minore op. 89
Haydn – Quartetto in mi bemolle maggiore op. 33 n. 2 Hob.III.38 “Lo Scherzo”
Brahms – Quintetto in fa minore op. 34
Three very different schools of chamber music are offered within this programme: the late-nineteenth-century French school, with Fauré’s brilliant, pearling pianistic style, which hovers over the strings’ elegant melodies; the Viennese school of Haydn at the birth of the modern quartet; and the German school, with Brahms’ sole but crucial Piano Quintet, which has the power of a concerto with full orchestra.
The Hermès Quartet – our guest for the first time – is considered one of the most noteworthy Parisian ensembles. It has made itself known in Italy also as a guest at Palazzetto Bru Zane, a joint Venice-Paris initiative dedicated to the French Romantic repertoire. Gabriele Carcano is now a confirmed friend of our Society: we hosted him at Villa Panza in 2010, he debuted in the main season at the Conservatory in 2015, and we invited him back the following year and again this year. He is one of the most interesting musicians on the scene today, and not only in Italy: at barely over thirty, he possesses technique, elegance, mastery of the repertoire, curiosity and interpretative intelligence.
