Mozart Quartet in E-flat major for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, K. 493 (1786)
Turina Quartet for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 67 (1931)
Brahms Quartet No. 2 in A major for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 26 (1861)
With the introduction of the modern piano came many firsts. Among them was the creation of an entirely new combination, the piano quartet, for which Mozart set the standard. Composers ever since have gravitated to the ensemble, and this program features two additional standouts of the genre by Turina and Brahms.
