Romantic Piano Quartets Tour & Recording - A Project of Unprecedented Scope
CMS presents a bold, lush program of Romantic Piano Quartets in Alice Tully Hall on March 1 and 3, and launches a 12-city tour of North America beginning February 28. A stellar cast, pianist Wu Han, violinist Daniel Hope, violist Paul Neubauer, and cellist David Finckel, unite for Mahler’s Piano Quartet in A minor; Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 47; and Brahms’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25. The extensive, unprecedented tour includes stops in the following cities: Richmond, VA (February 28); New York, NY (March 1 and 3); Chicago and Champaign-Urbana, IL (March 2); Savannah, GA (April 4); Santa Fe, NM (April 6); Toronto (April 8) and Vancouver (April 14), BC; Washington, DC (April 10); Detroit, MI (April 11); Princeton, NJ (April 13); and Costa Mesa, CA (April 15). The ambitious level of CMS touring activity amounts to over 70 concerts annually throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
To coincide with the tour, the New York performances on March 1 and 3 will be captured live on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label, masterfully engineered by Grammy Award winner Da-Hong Seeto. The disc will be available on-site at tour venues and the quartet will be on hand to sign copies following performances. The recording will be broadly released in late April.
