Jonathan Biss / Elias String Quartet - Carnegie Hall
881 7th Ave. - 212-247-7800
New York, NY
Description: Shortly after moving to Vienna in 1783, Mozart wrote a set of three concertos to show off his compositional skills and his prowess as a pianist, also producing orchestral and string-quartet arrangements of the works. On this program, Jonathan Biss and the Elias String Quartet perform the chamber version of the last of these three concertos, along with the Piano Quintet that helped solidify Schumann's reputation as a composer. Starting off the concert is Janacek's idiosyncratic Concertino.
