BridgeÂ Phantasy Piano Quartet
SchumannÂ Fantasy Pieces Op 88
MozartÂ Piano Quartet in E flat K493
Fantasy is the essential ingredient in all three of these masterpieces. Brittenâ€™s teacher Frank Bridge adds a touch of impressionism to his Brahms-influenced Phantasy, while Schumannâ€™s pieces are full of gorgeous lyrical invention. Mozart more or less invented the piano quartet, and Alfred Einstein describes K493 as â€œbright in colour, but iridescent, with hints of darker shadesâ€.
â€œThe Aronowitz works as a true ensemble, listening, responding, moving as one and creating mellifluous, fascinating texturesâ€
