APQ is excited to present Estatico, a free programme of works for piano and strings in the Eugene Goossens Hall, ABC Ultimo Centre. Mozart’s first piano quartet is the trailblazer for the genre and is underscored with both operatic intensity and whimsical delight.
Czech nationalist Bohuslav Martinu’s first piano quartet (1942) charts a dramatic departure from the world of Mozart, revelling in striking rhythmic irregularities, rich harmonic and textural variety and an exuberant Slavonic flair.
The concert title Estatico is taken from the finale of Finnish pianist and composer Olli Mustonen’s thrilling Piano Quintet (2015).
Imbued with passion, drama, and driving rhythm, Mustonen’s quintet has never been performed in Australia and is worthy of a place amongst the greatest works of the genre.
