In Season 4 Ironwood celebrate the advent of Romantic style with Schubert’s early String Quartet D. 94 composed in 1812 when he was only 15 years old. Schubert wrote his early string quartets mainly to enjoy in domestic concerts with his family. And yet these already herald his penchant for experimentation with surprising key relationships, thematic linking, and such new string effects as tremolo.

A selection of Beethoven’s Bagatelles for solo piano contrast with music of his near contemporary Anton Eberl whose works are still rarely heard in Australia. Eberl studied with Mozart and was known as a foremost piano virtuoso and teacher in Europe. Some of his music has been described as being as good as or better than Beethoven.

His Piano Quintet op. 41 for clarinet or violin, two violas, cello and piano is instantly appealing and imaginative in approach to form pushing the boundaries and heralding Romanticism.
