Music in the Round is delighted to welcome Robin Ireland back to the Crucible, a venue he knows so well from his years as violist with the Lindsay String Quartet.

Robin will join Ensemble 360 for one of Mozart’s finest chamber works, his String Quintet in G minor. It’s a work that’s rich in drama, the hallmark of one of the greatest opera composers, and a delicate aria from Mozart’s The Magic Flute will lead straight into the Quintet.

Schubert’s Second Piano Trio was one of the final pieces he completed before his death at the young age of 31. It’s a work of incredible emotional depth, with its most famous melody, frequently used in soundtracks for film and television, inspired by a traditional Swedish folksong.

Note from Guest Curator, Steven Isserlis

“I love connections between songs and chamber works. ‘Ach ich fuhl’s’ from The Magic Flute is not thematically related to Mozart’s great G minor Quintet; but somehow it seems to me to be the perfect prelude to what may be Mozart’s most personal chamber work, the heart-rending introduction to the last movement reportedly composed after he heard of the death of his father. The immortal slow movement of Schubert’s Second Piano Trio, on the other hand, is actually based on the Swedish folksong that we will hear just before the trio. Its mournful refrain of a descending octave – ‘farewell; farewell’ – evidently captured Schubert’s imagination.”
