Pianist David Kadouch and the Quatuor Hermès invite you to a Schumannian-flavored evening of chamber music, held behind closed doors from the Fondation Singer-Polignac! Beginning with the Nocturne by virtuoso pianist and composer Clara Schumann, the evening continues with two spirited pieces by her husband Robert Schumann. Delight in the exuberant E-flat major serenity of a treasured "creative double": the Op. 47 Piano Quartet and the revolutionary Op. 44 Piano Quintet, both written in 1842 and both among the composer's most enduring masterpieces.
The Quatuor Hermès is associated artist of the Fondation Singer-Polignac.
