Mozart & Brahms
Piano CONCERT II
June 8, 2019
In this series, we present you a selection of piano concerts, with the eminent pianist Imogen Cooper - performing at Longyearbyen Kulturhus.
Mozart was both a genius and a very busy composer. Writing music for the nobles across Europe. In 1785, her received a commission for three quartets from the German composer and music publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister.
The first quartet in this commission project, his g-minor quartet (K.478), was a piece of considerable complexity, very difficult for the musicians to perform, thus failed to appeal in the market of amateur musicians. The commissioner Hoffmeister was not satisfied with the result of the poor sales, and abandoned the project, cancelling the publishing of the two remaining quartets.
