CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Ensemble Connect by Fadi Kheir
A new work by TJ Cole, commissioned by Carnegie Hall, is framed by music of Mozart and Franck on this concert by the always exciting Ensemble Connect. Mozart’s genial Piano Trio delights with its abundant melodies, but also breaks new ground by liberating the strings from their traditional roles of supporting the pianist. Franck’s Quintet is at the other end of the emotional spectrum as it roils with passion and searing emotional intensity.

At a Glance

MOZART  Piano Trio in G Major, K. 496

The first of Mozart’s six piano trios, K. 496 belongs to the fruitful period of the mid-1780s that produced such masterpieces as The Marriage of Figaro, the six “Haydn” string quartets, and the “Jupiter” Symphony. Although it was called a piano sonata with string accompaniment, the three instruments are, in fact, fully equal partners.

 

TJ COLE  Silver, Blue

TJ Cole’s Silver, Blue explores sound, time, patterns, and interactions among performers. The composer’s experience of synesthesia, a condition in which different senses are associated with each other, inspired the title. Silver and blue are the predominant colors she associates with the sounds of the composition.

 

FRANCK  Piano Quintet in F Minor

The youthful ardor of Franck’s Piano Quintet—the first of a series of chamber music masterpieces he produced in the last dozen years of his life—belies the fact that the composer was in his mid-50s. At its Paris premiere in 1880, a reviewer for the Revue et gazette musicale characterized it as a “work of grand breadth and high style.”
