Stowe Chamber Music - MOZART & DVOŘÁK Saturday, July 13, 2024

Two phenomenal works written for Piano Quartet in the key of E-flat major! The key of E-flat has mainly been used in songs and music related to devotion and love, while also being known to convey bold and heroic message. Between Mozart’s bright and genial piano quartet and Dvořák’s heroically bold and soulful piano quartet, we know it will be a night to remember.
