Dvořák   Piano Quintet No 2 in A Op 81


This young ensemble came together by invitation from the CBSO and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire to perform Dvořák’s Piano Quintet at Symphony Hall. The quintet performed at St Phillip’s Cathedral in Birmingham and in the ‘Resonations’ series in Leicester, winning the Leamington Music Prize just a day prior to the Symphony Hall debut. This is a truly European group – violinists from Poland and Portugal, viola also from Portugal, cellist from Leicester and a Scottish pianist – and long may such collaborations continue.
