ArtistsQuartetto di Cremona
Andrea Lucchesini (piano)
Andrea Lumachi (double bass)
These two chamber music works of the French composer represent crucial stages in his oeuvre: the Piano Quintet, a work of early perfection, demonstrates Saint-SaŽnsís engagement with German Romanticism, particularly with Robert Schumann and his formal idiom. The String Quartet, marking the transition into his late style, represents the first chamber piece in which Saint-SaŽns leaves out his own instrument, the piano. Here, his version of the classical style Ė clear forms and a colourful expressive spectrum Ė becomes especially clear. Brilliance and an unerring sense of form; calm, melancholy resting and energetic gestures; romantic vocal qualities and exquisite compositional art Ė the contrasts characterising Saint-SaŽnsís musical idiom are perfectly realised by the Quartetto di Cremona.
