Ernst von Dohnányi: Piano Quintet in C minor Op. 1
Seeded by levocafestival on 15 Dec 2019

I Allegro II.Scherzo: Allegro vivace III. Adagio, quasi andante IV. Finale: Allegro animato Jordana Palovicová and the Moyzes Quartet give a sparkling performance of this exceptional Op. 1 at the 2019 Levoca Festival. Dohnányi was a 17-year old studying in Budapest when his teacher showed the manuscript of his piano quintet to Johannes Brahms. Brahms loved it, and organized a concert for Dohnányi in Vienna in 1895 with the young composer playing the solo part, launching his career. This brilliant work with its instinctive sense of melody and humour, and its eccentric rondo finale in 5/4 rhythm, clearly speaks for itself.
