Arianna String Quartet: Sound Spectrums

The ASQ is thrilled to welcome virtuoso pianist Alexandre Dossin back to the Touhill for an evening devoted to three unique sound worlds, set for piano solo and piano quartet. Mr. Dossin begins the evening with one of Franz Liszt’s most intimate and personal works, the seldom heard “Vallée d’Obermann”, a masterpiece inspired by Etienne Pivert de Senancour’s novel of the same title, that explores eternal philosophical questions of the human psyche. Brahms’ ruminative and autobiographical tour de force, the Piano Quartet in C minor, Op. 60 follows, depicting a world of staggering beauty juxtaposed against personal struggle. Mr. Dossin and the ASQ round out the evening with a performance of Dvorak’s beloved Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op.87, a work of arresting strength and heartfelt intimacy, and with a healthy dose of Gypsy panache that all come together to create an electrifying listening experience!
